Chapter 3 Weblogs getting started

I think Chapter 3 was a nice overview of what we have been learning about blogs. Although we have already learned how to set up a blog it was nice to see this chapter geared towards how to effectively use it in a classroom. One of the best things about this chapter were the references to "Good Educator's Blogs" on the last page. This book along with the references that were listed will be great tools to refer back to when I start teaching.

Blogs in the classroom

Do a reflection post based upon the information you have read and researched on blogs in education. How do you feel blogs can assist you in reaching your students? Provide examples from readings and additional research.

Web logs in the classroom can be used as a great collaborative space. They can make it easier and more interactive to give feedback to student work. Not only can it save time but it is a tool the students are enthusiastic about using. It can make the teaching and learning process more fun and enjoyable. Along with blogs, another great tool that I have just learned about through this class are RSS's. I am excited about learning more about RSS. I believe this tool has the potential of being even more useful then blogs.
