Why Blog?

Blogs create a portal for your students to share their learning with the world, they create a real-life application for their learning to be shared within.
It provides teachers and students with the opportunity to remove classroom walls and to bring the community and world into the class. They allow others to see what you are learning and doing in your classroom.

Blogs can provide motivation to students through the real-life sharing, communication and feedback given to them by their peers, community and world.
