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.
