  15. 15. “I think the biggest tip that I'd have for classroom teachers interested in building interest in blogging among their students would be to see blogging as something more than just a place for students to post stand-alone thoughts. For me, the power in blogging rests not in what I write alone, but in the reactions that others have to my writing and in my efforts to read and respond to the thoughts of others. Accomplished bloggers seek out others who are wrestling with common areas of interest, primarily because opportunities to interact with ideas is motivating. One of the tenets of constructivism is that true learning only takes place when deeply held personal beliefs are challenged by contrary evidence. In those moments, individuals are forced to refine and revise ideas that they once held to be true. In a sense, blogging makes such experiences possible for everyone. It is, in some ways, a remarkable opportunity for differentiation because writers of all ages are wrestling with interesting ideas at all times. With a bit of poking around, challenging content can be found for anyone.” Bill Ferriter
