The Plusses and Minuses of Classroom Blogging

Blogging is something that is new to me. I have read blogs before, but this class has given me my first taste of actually creating and maintaining a blog. I haven't found it difficult, yet I know that I have much more to learn.

We have seen this summer that blogging in the classroom can be beneficial. We ourselves have learned about it through the instruction of Dr. Strange, and also through just "jumping in". I hope that my experiences through classroom blogging will continue with me involving my future students in it.

There are definitely some plusses that come from classroom blogging. Feedback is one. Also, the sharing of information and ideas comes from reading/writing blogs as well as from the posting of comments. These seem to me to be the most obvious of plusses related to classroom blogging.

I really can't think of any minuses to classroom blogging. I certainly can't say that I don't want my students to share ideas or info. I can't say that technology doesn't have a place in learning. So, I must conclude that blogging in the classroom can only be beneficial for my students. It has been for me!
