5 reasons why schools should blog

Many schools are seeing the educational benefits of blogging. Teachers are mainly creating subject specific blogs or blogs documenting a particular project. The aim is usually to provide a more collaborative and interesting learning experience.

Here are five reasons why schools should consider blogging.

  1. They encourage higher order skills such as reflection and analysis but also encourage reading, writing and collaboration
  2. Publishing commentary and entries can lead to peer learning, peer assessment and a sense of ownership, all of which are highly motivational
  3. The technology involved is easy to use.
  4. They easily support video, audio and other media and file types therefore creating a very dynamic learning experience and supporting various learning styles
  5. Learning is extended to outside the school environment.
