Why Even the Worst Bloggers Are Making Us Smarter | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
We write the equivalent of 520 million books every day on social media and email. The fact that so many of us are writing — sharing our ideas, good and bad — has changed the way we think. Just as we now live in public, so do we think in public.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Who says literacy is suffering? We are writing more than ever. This post from Wired writer Clive Thompson gives some amazing examples of the power of writing on the web.

For a bit of inspiration take a look at a few of these student blogs. It really is amazing what students can do when they are set loose with writing tools. "Blogging is  a great learning venue for students; it does not only help them develop their literacy skills and hone in their  academic competencies but also provides them with a collaborative environment where they can exercise and grow their emotional, intellectual, and social intelligence."

Realize that students may not consider blogging because they don't know anything about it. This stuff is not taught in most North American schools. I recall speaking to a group of grade 12s and someone asked me what a blog was.

As if we had to support why blogging is important to students ... well, of course we do, and if you are in the position of reaching into your quivver for the arrow that will hit the target, this one has it all, a research base and a wow graphic. Run this by your curriculum coordinator :-)
