What I Have Learned
I have learned the value of blogs and how they can be used to enhance the classroom community. I am one who wants to create a simple and paperless classroom. I see all the wasted paper that gets passed out to students, then handed back in, then graded and handed back the students to end up somewhere...most likely the trash. I learned that with blogs I can post an initial questions or topic and have my student respond on the blog which can eliminate the waste of paper. There are a variety of options that can be used with blogs in the class. Using this as a method to keep parents up to speed on what is going on in class and even post instructional summaries and assignments for those who are absent and need to get their make-up work. I feel that the only challenge will be teaching my students how to properly and effectively use this technology and investigating which blog sites will be allowed at my future school.
