Blogging in the Schools

K-12 teachers are starting to use blogging with their students. In addition to learning the technology, they are learning they can express themselves for a larger world, work with writing skills, current events, democracy, calculus, music theory, and Mandarin just to start.

Some of these blogs are open to the public for viewing and commenting (usually with an adult moderator); others are available just for the class. There are definitely issues here, but many teachers are starting to work through them. This article cites a book that will be out in 2006:

Richardson, Will. An Educator’s Guide to Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Cool Web Tools that are Transforming the Classroom. Corwin Press, 2006.
