Impact Of Blogging On Metacognition

1,831

Published on

Metacognition is taken to a higher order of thinking when students use blogging to reflect on their experiences instead of the old fashion journaling.

The pressure of performing in front of one another influences the students’ drive to achieve.

When the instructor also requires students to comment and critique each other on the blog site, they feel a sense of accomplishment. The students take on ownership of their assignments.

Educators need to be “keeping up” with the changes taking place to prepare the students for the world outside of the educational facility.

  • I am thinking of using blogging to keep a weekly journal with my students. We will listen to music and blog about what they believe the music means to them.

  • It is my opnion that blogging is a great way to learn. It is a great way to learn not only from a teacher but from other students as well. This has really broadened my horizons to see what other students are experiencing. The downside to it is that because I am not used to using this type of technology in the classroom it is difficult to make the transition from virtual to hard copy.

  • I think blogging is very beneficial. It helps us know what to expect and help others with information they may need. I hae never blogged about anything before this class and now that I have done it I wish there were more classes available like this one. It is more of a learning experience and if I did not get to go on a rotation I wanted to go to I can read about it in a blog and ask the person about their time on the rotation or any information i would like to know.

  • Blogging is a great way to express yourself and to see what others think about certain topics. Our generation is one of improved technology. Most people do things electronically anyway so blogging is an easy way for people to share experiences. Assignments and due dates are also posted which makes it helpful to lookup without having to bug somebody about. Blogging is also a shared learning experience. You can share things that you learn so that a chain of learning goes to all the people who have read yours. Before this class, I had never blogged and was kind of iffy about it. I thought it would be complicated and a trouble to deal with. But it is the opposite of that, it is simple,easy, and a great way to share with your fellow colleagues.

  • I know that blogging will be essential for us to know in the future. All colleges will probably require it as well as many other activities we may do in the future. With advancing technology, the way it is now, blogging is faster and more convienient than writting a paper. I think blogging in Health Academy is useful because every student experiences a unique opportuinity that we are able to share to the class through this blog. Any student can then access it anywhere that there is a computer. You also do not have to worry about the transfer from you to the teacher like you have to do a paper. Electronically you can post your homework and a few seconds later, the teacher can log on and grade it. Fast and easy. It is good that we are getting exposed to it now.
