  3. 3. <ul><li>Both of these products are inexpensive and easy to use. </li></ul><ul><li>They can help strengthen reading and writing skills. </li></ul><ul><li>They encourage collaboration and engagement. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis and blogs are accessible to editing, adding, and deleting content. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Classrooms can have blogs where one person participates or where the entire class contributes to the blog. </li></ul><ul><li>Readers can comment on each others blogs. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis and blogs both can help with the exploration of different careers. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis are more controlled for educational purposes. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis and blogs are used for professional development, communication between parents and teachers, and engagement between the school district and community. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Personally, I think wikis and blogs are a great idea to have in a classroom because they help with group assignments and projects. </li></ul><ul><li>In my opinion, they take a lot of time to use to and figure out how to work everything. </li></ul><ul><li>Wikis and blogs promote collaboration and engagement between parents, students, teachers, and other community members. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>“ 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). </li></ul><ul><li>With blogs, we can customize entries, view old entries, and about new entries. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs can be about any topic. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs are used in all levels of education. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Blogs can be used to store portfolios. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs can be used to generate communication between parents, teachers, and students. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs can record information about the students or their ideas. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs can be used as a classroom journal. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>I really like how this article ties classrooms together. </li></ul><ul><li>I would like to use a blog in my classroom as a journal. </li></ul><ul><li>I think it would be neat to capture all my students’ ideas and opinions into one document. </li></ul><ul><li>I would also like to communicate with my students’ parents through blogs. It would be an easy and efficient way to get messages across. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>A blog is an online journal that users can continuously update, in their own words, online (Matheson, 2004). </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs don’t require HTML or web scripting. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs serve the purpose of an online journal. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Language teachers can use blogs to ask students questions, share viewpoints, and encourage students to discuss issues and express their concerns” (Yang,2009). </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>“ 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). </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs inspire personal writing. </li></ul><ul><li>They provide opportunities to broaden knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs provide a place for hyperlinks. This gives teachers a place to post assignments and record information. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>After reading these three articles, I would definitely use blogs in my classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>I never knew that blogs could inspire personal writing or contribute to the motivation of reading. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>

  13. 13. <ul><li>“ 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). </li></ul><ul><li>I would definitely use blogs in my classroom because it brings classrooms closer together and helps with most communication barriers. </li></ul><ul><li>Ah ha Moments! </li></ul><ul><li>When I figured out how to make the action buttons work. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning how to animate everything. </li></ul><ul><li>Reading all the different ways I could use a blogs in my classroom. </li></ul>
