Classroom Blogging: What Is the Role in Science Learning?
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v83 n2 p44-48 2010
Educators are encouraged to integrate technology into their classrooms because today's student is exposed to all sorts of digital devices in their daily life. Classroom blogging is an excellent way to use the internet for more than just research. Blogging capitalizes on student interest in the internet. When done properly, a blog can serve as an online portfolio to showcase student work. Blogging can give the "silent student" a voice by allowing them the opportunity to write on topics of interest. Finally, blogging provides immediate, "click-to-publish" results. Student work is available immediately for peers to review or for others on the world wide web to comment and post feedback. All of these factors can be motivating for students to learn.
