Blogs in Practice
For this week each day I'm going to highlight a different blog that is being used in k-12 education as a way to show how this technology could be beneficial in the classroom. Today, I'd like to introduce you to The Blurb , which is a blog maintained by a teacher along with a group of students. The Blurb is a newscast type of blog that focuses on different current issues and often invites readers to weigh in with their opinions on the different news stories. It's not updated daily but I like the thought provoking nature of the posts and how the different stories that are covered are giving the authors a chance to explore a broad range of topics. In addition, they get a chance to facilitate a higher level of discussion with a large audience while providing their readers with information and perspective on the range of issues discussed. Check it out!
