Incorporating any type of technology, especially with older students allows the teacher to utilize the student’s appetite for technology, towards something that can aid in their learning. For instance, in the early division of elementary school a blog could be used for writing down homework and reading assignments of the students. Although at this age students themselves may not be able to read the blogs it would be a great resource for parents to ensure that they are aware of their child’s homework. As for older children they would be able to log on know of their up coming assignments.
Teachers would also be able to use blogging as away to follow up with students. For example, there are countless times in which a teacher is asked the abstract question where they need to do more research in order to have the appropriate answer. With a tool such as blogging, I would be able to post an answer the question the minute I found it. In addition to this, as a teacher I could see my self using blogging as a way to spark a discussion on a particular topic.
