Learning through blogging
From encouraging idea sharing to improving writing skills to simply being plain fun, there are many reasons blogging is a great way to learn.
After all, students already own the tools (mobile phone, laptops, PDAs) and have the connections (500 friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter–that’s a lot of brains to pick!).
Nevertheless, as schools start to design lessons and assignments around blogs, educators have a responsibility to guide students on the finer points of blogging, so that learning is both meaningful and safe.
