  2. 2. Blogging for learning research(from the project proposal)  Blogs offer learners opportunities to incorporate many perspectives, develop carefully crafted contributions, reflect and make considered responses to others (Ferguson et al., 2007). This medium provides an environment in which people can observe, articulate and refine practices (Efimova et al., 2004).  At the same time, by making use of the comment facility, bloggers are able to share thoughts, ideas and opinions (Du and Wagner, 2005). In order for students to engage effectively with this emerging genre, they need to be able to experiment and take ownership of their writing, learning to develop a blog as a space for personal learning, reflection and interaction (Bryman and Burgess, 1994). 2
