  3. 3. Blogging? It's Elementary,My Dear Watson! <ul><li>Blogging in the classroom is becoming more and more common. </li></ul><ul><li>It has been a place of discussion for things such as current events. </li></ul><ul><li>There are programs and tools, such as Blogmeister which help teachers oversee students activities and set up student accounts. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Blogging? It's Elementary,My Dear Watson! <ul><li>One of the most important things the author of the article keeps going over is the safety of the students, and making sure the blog is secure. </li></ul><ul><li>The author suggests think.com, which is a closed e-mail and Web-authoring tool. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Thoughts on the article <ul><li>I like that the article talked a lot about starting the students early with blogging technology. Another very important thing was the safety of the blog. Since the article was talking about starting elementary students blogging in the classroom. This article had a lot of helpful links, which if I was a teacher I could use very effectively in the classroom. </li></ul>
  6. 6. In the Classroom, Web Logs Are the New Bulletin Boards <ul><li>The teacher in this article using blogging for the classroom reports that the quiet students in here class excel on the blog. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Peter Grunwald, an education consultant, predicts that blogs will eventually become a more successful teaching tool than Web sites.” </li></ul><ul><li>Some teachers are even having guest speakers on the blogs to answer questions the students may have. </li></ul>
  7. 7. In the Classroom, Web Logs Are the New Bulletin Boards <ul><li>Teachers also like the tool, because they can give almost immediate feedback to the students. </li></ul><ul><li>Bloggers can also blog with other schools in other countries and learn about their cultures. </li></ul><ul><li>The article says that one of the goals for the blogs are to get students to write more. </li></ul><ul><li>Some critics think that blogging is too casual and causes bad writing habits. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Thoughts on the article <ul><li>I really liked this article. It had a lot of good point for the use of blogs in the classroom. A blog really can extend the classroom to outside of school. If a student is still in contact with their teacher and is excited to learn then I think that’s a great thing. Blogging with other schools from other countries is also a great feature. When I was in elementary school we had to have a pen-pal, but this could completely replace that. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Supportblogging.comEducational Blogging <ul><li>Blogging supports active learning by keeping the student engaged in the material. </li></ul><ul><li>Says that blogging is an effective form of communication within the classroom, and the voice of everyone is heard. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Thoughts on the article <ul><li>This article had very little substance. The problem I had was that it was very repetitive. It probably really seemed this, because it was the third article that I read on blogging in the classroom. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Conclusion <ul><li>I really like the idea of blogging in the classroom. When I begin to teach I could have my students think about an issue while their at home and have them turn it in at a certain time at night, so the class can discuss it right then and there. This would also make homework easier for the student by not making it such a bore. I really like where this technology is going and want to look and learn more about it. </li></ul>
