Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | 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.
