Blogging in Education

Blogs are seen often throughout education. Many teachers may use blogs to have their students write about what they are learning in school. Other teachers may use blogs to discuss different projects that students may be researching. Students could then comment on their classmates’ projects through the use of the blog. If a class was communicating with another school, they could use blogs. Blogging would be very useful when teachers implement a telecollaborative project.
