I network with a few educators, and it seems blogging is the new teaching tool that is catching on. It creates a whole new level of interaction that hasn’t taken place before. Instead of handing in essays students can blog their essay answers.
Blogging Will Revolutionize Education.
According to the Chicago Tribune more and more teachers are heading online to start their own blogs.
One Principal believes blogging is the future of education. And I tend to agree. The ability to quickly assess a students understanding of the course material is huge. And teachers can easily interact with students in the comments section and in the classroom forums. Likewise tools can be create in which to rate, and/or grade posts to help teach students where they need to improve. Built in spelling tools will help students create a solid understanding of grammar and excellence in performance.
Blogging will change the way future generations of students adapt to an ever changing society. Homeschooling will become more prevalent as tools become available to network with other homeschoolers and share classroom materials.
New media tools like video blogging will allow instructors to give out lectures over the internet, interact with parents, and allow parents to offer feedback 24 hours a day.
The days of a traditional classroom have passed us by.
