    • Both of these products are inexpensive and easy to use.
    • They can help strengthen reading and writing skills.
    • They encourage collaboration and engagement.
    • Wikis and blogs are accessible to editing, adding, and deleting content.
  • 4.
    • Classrooms can have blogs where one person participates or where the entire class contributes to the blog.
    • Readers can comment on each others blogs.
    • Wikis and blogs both can help with the exploration of different careers.
    • Wikis are more controlled for educational purposes.
    • Wikis and blogs are used for professional development, communication between parents and teachers, and engagement between the school district and community.
  • 5.
    • Personally, I think wikis and blogs are a great idea to have in a classroom because they help with group assignments and projects.
    • In my opinion, they take a lot of time to use to and figure out how to work everything.
    • Wikis and blogs promote collaboration and engagement between parents, students, teachers, and other community members.
  • 6.
    • “ Essentially, a blog is a website that is updated frequently, and usually includes some degree of interactivity that allows readers to post comments” (Buffington, 2008).
    • With blogs, we can customize entries, view old entries, and about new entries.
    • Blogs can be about any topic.
    • Blogs are used in all levels of education.
  • 7.
    • Blogs can be used to store portfolios.
    • Blogs can be used to generate communication between parents, teachers, and students.
    • Blogs can record information about the students or their ideas.
    • Blogs can be used as a classroom journal.
  • 8.
    • I really like how this article ties classrooms together.
    • I would like to use a blog in my classroom as a journal.
    • I think it would be neat to capture all my students’ ideas and opinions into one document.
    • I would also like to communicate with my students’ parents through blogs. It would be an easy and efficient way to get messages across.
  • 9.
    • A blog is an online journal that users can continuously update, in their own words, online (Matheson, 2004).
    • Blogs don’t require HTML or web scripting.
    • Blogs serve the purpose of an online journal.
    • “ Language teachers can use blogs to ask students questions, share viewpoints, and encourage students to discuss issues and express their concerns” (Yang,2009).
  • 10.
    • “ The use of blogs is a way to provide such motivation for reading in a language other than one’s mother tongue, through the interactive nature of the blog. One can read and also comment on what one reads in expectation of a little discussion and a quest for common interests and individual differences” (Yang,2009).
    • Blogs inspire personal writing.
    • They provide opportunities to broaden knowledge.
    • Blogs provide a place for hyperlinks. This gives teachers a place to post assignments and record information.
  • 11.
    • After reading these three articles, I would definitely use blogs in my classroom.
    • I never knew that blogs could inspire personal writing or contribute to the motivation of reading.
    • I would like to use blogs as a question and answer type of resource. If students didn’t understand an assignment or had generic questions about grades, they could comment about it on the class blog.

  • 13.
    • “ Blogs can be treated as virtual language classrooms. People from all over the world can share opinions and express ideas by using a language they all understand. Language teachers can use blogs as discussion forums to increase time and opportunities for students to learn the target language”( Yang, 2009).
    • I would definitely use blogs in my classroom because it brings classrooms closer together and helps with most communication barriers.
    • Ah ha Moments!
    • When I figured out how to make the action buttons work.
    • Learning how to animate everything.
    • Reading all the different ways I could use a blogs in my classroom.
