8 Brilliant Alternatives To Blogging In The Classroom

8 Brilliant Alternatives To Blogging In The Classroom | Blogging in the classroom | Scoop.it
"Blogging is–or should have been–a boon to teaching writing, but somehow it never quite got there. Though professional blogging (ahem) can indeed pervert some of the best parts of writing (which basically amounts to packaging deeper ideas for quick consumption in the high-traffic context of the internet), it has at its heart two of the most important ideas about writing: audience and purpose. So when you want to communicate with extended stacks of paragraphs–as teachers love for students to do–blogging is great. They’re free, generally easy to use, and allow for students to share their thinking with the world (mercifully removing the primary teacher as the audience for the students’ thoughts). But what else is there? What else might be possible that can take the best parts of both blogging and the writing process in general."

Really inspiring ideas. Storybird is one of my favourite. Students can create their own children's books and get inspired by beautiful artwork.

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:39 AM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.
