Alright folks I just like to give my own opinion on blogs and blogging. First of all I believe it is an excellent tool that every teacher should be recommended to use. Why?
1. Blogging is cross curricular. It is not limited to any one or two subjects but can be used for any subject by any teacher.
2. It is a great way to build the confidence of pupils. Pupils grow in confidence when they see their work been published on the internet. Also it is a great media for pupils who may be too shy or lack confidence to participate in class.
3. Blogging is a life long skill that pupils will pick up through blogging. Additionally technology is becoming more and more involved in jobs. Technology is a trade that is on the increase and is on high demand for employers who are looking for employees.
For this and many other reasons that I feel blogging is a great media, that should be promoted more often in the educational sector.
