Blogging in the classroom: Why your students should write online

Blogging in the classroom: Why your students should write online | blogging at stjames | Scoop.it

"Student blogging is powerful and stimulating and enriching. The online capacity to link-reference makes for a punchy way to write interconnectedly. The range of interfaces and appearances available professionalises students' work and they rise to that implicit reward: this is considerably more motivating than writing longhand in that dog-eared exercise book. Feedback, group work and a visible papertrail are all effortless gains."

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online | blogging at stjames | Scoop.it
For the past few months Michael Drennan's GCSE and A level students have been doing all their writing via student blogs.

 

Students realise how high the bar of public domain writing is. This can be initially intimidating, but that removes all apathy or sense of the humdrum. Asking all students to write blogs as learning unfolds and interlinks empowers the teacher to be more supportive because they're less tied to the bureaucracy; it raises challenge levels; it enables IT-skilling; it lets students see their own progress and differentiates well; it means more productive and accelerating learning-talk over rote-writing.

Changing “Classroom Normal” with Interactive Blogging

Changing “Classroom Normal” with Interactive Blogging | blogging at stjames | Scoop.it

Have you tried blogging with your students? Wesley Fryer discusses using "interactive blogs" in your class in this post. An "interactive blog" is one that allows posts from teachers, students, and blog visitors, but it is moderated. 

Fryer has been working with educators and polling them this summer and discusses his findings in this article. He also links to an article, "Why Word Press? Class Blogging with Moderated Posts and Comments" which walks you through how to set up a moderated blog with Word Press.
