Teaching Tip #25

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #25

10. Blog together

This could combine several of the other risks.  While I don’t necessarily blog with them, I have toyed with the concept of creating a combined classroom blog where we all have access and take turns writing posts.  Students could put their “On the Other Hand” columns on there as well as other essays.

I have had students use blogs collectively as a class to chronicle scavenger hunts.  Here are some examples: Example #1, Example #2, and Example #3.

I have used blogs to have discussions, so we have blogged together in that sense.  And it has been effective in generating a discussion.  The problem is that students never go back and read it again once their responses are written.
