Classroom Management
• Class blogs can serve as a portal to foster a
  community of learners.
• They can be used to inform students of class
  requirements, post handouts, notices, and
  homework assignments, or act as a question and
  answer board.
Collaboration
• Blogs provide a space where teachers and students
  can work to further develop writing or other skills
  with the advantage of an instant audience.
• Teachers can offer instructional tips, and students
  can practice and benefit from peer review. They
  also make online mentoring possible.
• Students can also participate in cooperative
  learning activities that require them to relay
  research findings, ideas, or suggestions.
Discussions
• A class blog opens the opportunity for students to
  discuss topics outside of the classroom.
• With a blog, every person has an equal opportunity
  to share their thoughts and opinions.
• Students have time to be reactive to one another
  and reflective.
• Teachers can also bring together a group of
  knowledgeable individuals for a given unit of study
  for students to network and conference with on a
  blog.
Student Portfolios
• Blogs present, organize, and protect student work
  as digital portfolios.
• Additionally, as students realize their efforts will be
  published, they are typically more motivated to
  produce better writing.
• Teachers and peers may conference with a student
  individually on a developing work, and expert or
  peer mentoring advice can be easily kept for future
  reference.

Editor's Notes

  1. As an educational tool, blogs may be integrated in a multi-faceted manner to accommodate all learners. Blogs can serve at least four basic functions.The blogging process has more digital and social components, and the cycle is best displayed in the graphic image below, definitely a nice "behind-the-scenes" look at what teachers must think about before diving into classroom blogging. 
  2. Class blogs can serve as a portal to foster a community of learners. As they are easy to create and update efficiently, they can be used to inform students of class requirements, post handouts, notices, and homework assignments, or act as a question and answer board.
  3. Blogs provide a space where teachers and students can work to further develop writing or other skills with the advantage of an instant audience. Teachers can offer instructional tips, and students can practice and benefit from peer review. They also make online mentoring possible. For example, a class of older students can help a class of younger students develop more confidence in their writing skills. Students can also participate in cooperative learning activities that require them to relay research findings, ideas, or suggestions.
  4. A class blog opens the opportunity for students to discuss topics outside of the classroom. With a blog, every person has an equal opportunity to share their thoughts and opinions. Students have time to be reactive to one another and reflective. Teachers can also bring together a group of knowledgeable individuals for a given unit of study for students to network and conference with on a blog.
  5. Student PortfoliosBlogs present, organize, and protect student work as digital portfolios. As older entries are archived, developing skills and progress may be analyzed more conveniently. Additionally, as students realize their efforts will be published, they are typically more motivated to produce better writing. Teachers and peers may conference with a student individually on a developing work, and expert or peer mentoring advice can be easily kept for future reference.
