Blogs are great because you can share work and achievements with a wide, authentic audience. Instead of just the teacher seeing the students’ creations, all of the parents and students can view the work and leave comments. Having a blog helps to strengthen home-school partnerships and build a sense of classroom community. Blogging provides the ideal opportunity for students to learn about appropriate online behaviours and get experience using a 21st century technology.
