NEA Reports about Blogging in Schools


Thanks, Shari L. for pointing to the October, 2005, NEA piece about blogging in education.

Many teacher blogs look like personal diaries and serve as virtual lounges, a place to kvetch and share inspiration with colleagues (see page 35 for more.) But the collaborative nature of Web logs also make them valuable instructional tools to connect students and teachers, and provide a new place to create Web-based content.
