  • 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.
