In the articles we read we observed that schools are using blogs in a variety of ways. Two of the articles cited the way in which two seperate schools in different regions of the country used blogs as a means for the students in the high school to serve as mentors to the kids in the elementary school. These blogs not only built confidence in the elementary school children it also built parent involvement by allowing parents to access their childs work on the net.
In the article of diffrent points of view these children were able to get feed back from parents or anyone who read their articals on the web. It helped them to get better undestanding in what they were researching on. Also, people would respond on other points of view for these students. There were many students who did’nt speak the same lanugage which helped them with thier writing skills. This helped the student to have motivation on their subject.
In the article Weblogging to success, It discussed using weblogs as research tools. The research tools use is cost effective, it improves writing skills, individualizes instruction, and it helps to revise assignments.
