Blog Posts in the Classroom

I found this article online that discusses how teachers incorporate blog posts into their classroom. It gives really good anecdotes from real teachers regarding how to manage the decorum of the blogs and how students are more motivated to blog and comment on their peers thinking. I think this allows for a great opportunity to include a social skills lesson on the proper way to comment, post and to not share the personal information with other people. Overall, I think blogs are a great way to get students participating more actively in their learning.
