A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites, usually presented as a list of entries in reverse chronological order. It also provides people the opportunity to leave comments. Creating a blog is easy and does not take a lot of time. Blogger.com provides step by step directions. Once you have set up a blog, it is fast and easy to update. Take some time to go through the settings. There are several options available to monitor post/comments.

Why Blog?
  • Post Resources
  • Share Lessons
  • Online Discussion
  • Get Feedback
  • Newsletters
  • Share Multimedia
In education, blogs can be used...
  • with your students
  • with other teachers in or outside of your school
  • with your students to communicate with other students outside of your school
Here is a short video explaining what a blog is.

This year I plan to continue to use http://edublogs.org/ with my students. My next post will include the blog I used with my second grade students last year and my experience using it.
