Why blog?

A blog is a website where someone (or someones, if the blog is a group blog) periodically posts pieces of their writing for anyone to read. Each piece of writing is known as a “post”. For a typical science blog, these pieces are maybe 100-1000 words long, though they can be shorter or longer than that. Sometimes they’re illustrated (e.g., with figures or photographs), and they ordinarily contain links to related material (e.g., other blogs, scientific papers, etc.).

How Blogging Transformed My Classes
This week, Edublogs user and teacher Mrs. McNally published a post titled How Blogging Transformed My Classes. In her post, Mrs. McNally weaves inspirational stories about moments of cooperation, discovery and, dare I say, enlightenment into her practical descriptions of how she set up her blog and began the process of blogging with her classes. It’s a post worth reading and sharing with other teachers who may be interested in blogging with their classes.
