Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 23, 2013 11:48 PM

To be honest, not every student will take to blogging the way that we envision as teachers, and to be honest, that is okay.  If we make them do it the way we think it should be done, they might have trouble adopting this past the school setting.  That being said, if we do give them the freedom to write or share not only what they are interested in, but also share it how they like, it could develop into something very powerful that will also give them an authentic audience.


Why do you believe students should blog? If they aren’t, why not?

James Buchanan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:54 PM

Blogging gives students an authentic voice in the world. By blogging students gain a worldwide audience, which is more relevant to them than writing something that will only be read by the teacher. Having the audience encourages them to have accurate information and urges them to write engagingly, and opens them up to question each other and to be questioned, which is the door to critical thinking.

Writing for Interaction

Writing for Interaction | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

By writing for interaction, I mean writing that is meant to be interactive for a reader, not simply in the sense that reading is an experience created by both writer and reader, but rather that the decisions made by the reader change what is read. That is, reading practices that enable responses from the text. It is one thing to write an email expecting a response and react to that response. It is another to write a book or other text for a broad audience that is designed to react to the reading choices made by individual members of that audience.
