Intro Blog: Blogs in Schools
In schools, I see blogs serving two purposes; to enhance student writing and to organize and communicate information. As outlined on weblogg-ed.com blogs would enhance student writing by helping students find a voice, creating enthusiam for writing, engaging students in conversation, providing opportunities to learn about responsible journalism and empowering students. To organize and communicate information, blogs could be used for class newsletters or information pages, a school website, minutes or comments about committee meetings, storing student work, eportfolios, and collaborative student learning projects.
