What are the benefits of classroom Blogging?


Bloggging has opened a door that many schools are finding it difficult to open. What are the benefits of Blogging as a community (classroom). Here are a few examples. They can
  • reflect on their reading or classroom discussions.
  • investigate topics online and then report on their research.
  • record group progress on a project.
  • talk about shared classroom experiences.
  • copy and paste thought-provoking quotes from other blogs, and then offer their own thoughts on the topic.
  • ask professional writers to edit their blogs, or provide feedback.

This would be great; but, when do we allow the students to do this?

Sounds like an excellent idea.

Get different points of view.

One of the benefits is that everyone will be able to view what everyone's opinion/findings are.

Students are familiar with this form of communication and may be more open and comfortable with this format.

When will the teacher have the time to check this out each day?

Blogging can be beneficial to those students who are afraid to participate in class but are willing to discuss things with their classmates under an anonymous name or identity.

It is a great way to encourage participation. Students like fast, easy ways to response.

Blogging enhances the capability for students to become more participatory in their education. It offers them several avenues of thought, not just one teachers opinion. It helps them to clarify their thoughts and writing them as well. It also opens the door to rebuttals, others opinions and educational learning. I love the idea and how it opens doors to more than we could ever imagine! Sister Mary John Trevino, mcdp at St. Cecilia Catholic School.
