One of my daughters had a blog for awhile and being the parent that I am who worries about EVERYTHING, I didn’t approve because I equated it with chat rooms. I’m feeling better about blogs now. Of course, we still have to be cautious. But, I am thinking about setting one up for my sister and me (she lives in another state) so that we can keep up with each other even better. As a teacher of language, I predict Spanish blogging in the future of my students. Note to self: Look up word for blog in Spanish. Seriously, this would make be a great learning tool for language students.
I admit that when I first read that we had to set up blogs, I thought that it would be a huge chore and that I would have to call for help, but it wasn’t as tough as I thought if one does not mind swimming in the dark for an indeterminate period of time.
This class marks my introduction to the feed reader and I am so impressed! That is a handy little tool. I could use it with my classes…I just don’t know if all of my students have high-speed internet access. I am going to think on this one and see what might work for us.
