Uses for Educational Blogging

  • Dialoguing

  • Teacher and Professional Blogs

  • Classroom or Student Blogs

  • Parent and Teacher Communication Blogs


  • A teacher blog that posts questions about current subject matter can be a great way to introduce students to responding in writing and contributing collaboratively. For instance, a teacher might ask specific thought-provoking questions about a book the class is reading, and ask for students to respond through the “comments” feature with their ideas. This is often done as a voluntary exercise to help demonstrate the uses of blogs in easy steps.

Teacher or Professional Blogs

  • Teachers can blog for each other about their experiences teaching, their philosophies, and their methodologies.

  • Teachers who do this often go on to becoming professional speakers or imparters of knowledge

  • Jim Moulton, former teacher & trainer, PBL consultant with Apple in the Northeast

Classroom or StudentBlogs

  • The providing of each student with an individual blog seems to generate the most significant enthusiasm for blogging among students.**

  • Students who blog have an opportunity to discover the work and joy of communicating their ideas in written form, and then getting feedback from others.

  • Most often public student blogs are done under a nickname and without any personal details, so that the incredible excitement that can come from communicating with a global audience does not place the student in harm's way.

    • **Moderated on a teacher’s site

Parent Teacher Communication

  • Posting of Homework & Assignments (for absentees)

  • Posting of Class Rules, Consequences & Syllabi
