For many teachers, classroom blogging is a struggle for a variety of reasons. Even if you have the know-how and the resources, to do it right isn’t such a simple endeavor. The question is, are the rewards worth the struggle?
What do you think?
After running PikiFriends for over 4 years I’ve seen countless examples of positive impacts of classroom blogging when it’s done right. It brings out the shy students. It motivates many students to communicate effectively. It provides so many opportunities for blended learning situations. It gives teachers chances to teach digital citizenship and online etiquette. The list goes on and on.
It’s hard work, but we teachers are no strangers to that!
