What is a weblog?
A weblog, more casually known as a blog, started out as a place where people could list links to pages they had read and some, if any comments on them. Today blogs are a very universal tool that can be used for anything from an online filling cabinet for course work and reflections to an interactive classroom portal to the world.
Other Possible Uses:
- Teacher journal
- Storing Lesson plans with comments/reflections, or educational materials
- Communication with parents [e.g. classroom news/resource blog]
- Collaboration in class with students [e.g. class blog]
