This is an educational high school class blog. It will serve as a technology “test” for the students in Mrs. Cunningham’s computer classes. We hope to use this platform to share what we learn this year with our parents, friends and classmates.
But Why Blogging?
I have recently read a great many articles on the subject of blogging and its use in education. After all, it is technology and never really stays out of the news feeds! Anyway, as a summer project, I decided to do a little research on the subject. Following is a list of the top 5 reasons (IMHO) for using blogging as a learning tool.
- Reflection leads to deeper learning
- Authentic audience
- Improved writing skills
- Improved communication skills
I will be posting more information on each of these top 5 reasons as the semester progresses. I hope that you will agree the benefits are well worth the effort and join us. You can easily follow this blog by signing up for an email subscriptionat the right or on our home page
Thanks for learning through blogging with us!
