What is a blog?

 A blog is a way to share - a communication tool.  People use it for various reasons an electronic diary, a  reflection, sharing pictures, videos, and ideas.  One thing that makes a blog special is that you can comment on it.  So others can share their ideas as well.

How is a blog like read/write web? You're not just a consumer... you can publish and it is interactive.

You might be asking yourself what do these technologies mean for you and your students? Blogging is a good start to a paperless classroom.  Students can begin publishing their works which will give them meaningful feedback and shows that their teacher is available to them on a regular basis.  Students LOVE it because their voices are heard and it is done electronically.
