Possible Uses for Blogs

Scott Leslie has created a matrix of possible uses for blogs in education. You can get to it here.

He begins by considering how different groups might use them: self, students, instructors, other instructors, others on the internet.

They could be used as a Portfolio for each student. If you create a cateogory English 9 and under it a subcategory for each student (Mary, Ted, etc), then you could have them post daily journal entries, brief answers to various questions or assignments, and final essays.

They could be used as a group discussion board. Create a category for a class’s group research project, such as “Quilts”. Ask each student to report on some aspect of quilts, based on a reading or interview. Ask each member to post comments to several of the original posts.
