This week the assignment was to write a letter and a proposal detailing why blogging in the classroom is beneficial to students. The purpose behind the assignment is that whether using blogging with students or writing a blog as a teacher, it is important to get permission from administration. This was a very beneficial assignment as it really made me think about why and how blogs can be used in the classroom. It’s always been my position that technology should not be used just for the sake of using technology. What I mean is that the use of technology in the classroom should be purposeful and not just an add-on or obligation. By completing this assignment, I now have a better understanding of why blogging can be beneficial in the classroom and a more justified reason for using it in my classroom.
