Blogs – abbreviated from WEBLOGS – are IN! They are everywhere. Should you care? Well, yes, if they are relevant. Students’ blogs can be one way to get them to write in ways that are meaningful to them, about any topic of their interest. They can cover subjet areas, too … which could become a resource by students for students.
What may be a good starting point for you is a visit to some Education Blogs, many by teachers, and a few good E-Newsletters that are delivered to you as e-mail. Blogs are more like articles on a wide variety of subjects; the ones below focus on education.
