Using Web Logs in the Science Classroom
Duplichan, Staycle C.
Science Scope, v33 n1 p33-37 Sep 2009
As educators we must ask ourselves if we are meeting the needs of today's students. The science world is adapting to our ever-changing society; are the methodology and philosophy of our educational system keeping up? In this article, you'll learn why web logs (also called blogs) are an important Web 2.0 tool in your science classroom and how they can be created and used to increase science literacy by engaging students in writing, problem solving, and collaboration. These tools will effectively prepare students to work in today's social, interactive, online world. (Contains 7 figures.)
