What is edu-blogging
A blog (derived from "web log") is an online journal that contains chronological entries (or "posts") that consist of text, links,
images, video and other media. Blog posts are arranged in reverse chronological order, with the most recent posts first. The
term “blogging” refers to the process of updating a blog with a new post.
Teachers can use blogs to stay connected with students, parents and the entire school community. A teacher's blog can be
used to publicize class events and share photos, taking the place of a classroom newsletter. It can also be used to update
parents about student progress, post assignments and share instructional resources. If you want to create a private blog
that can only be seen by your class, use a blogging platform like Blogger that allows you to control who can view the blog.
