Blogging lets you and your students publish their work, have written discussions, and interact with a broader – more authentic – audience. Blogging can be used to form a discussion forum, post short current events articles, invite students’ thoughts, foster communication among multiple classes, serve as a log of student progress on an assignment or project, build a digital portfolio, post photos and homework assignments, and much more.
To get started, first choose your platform. We have a number of recommendations on our Blogging Apps Recommendations page.
