Blogging in Education Today (part 2 in a series)

This week we’re learning about teachers using “classroom blogs”

Last week we started this series examining the current state of blogging in education by looking at how today’s teachers are using blogs. Our first post focused on teachers blogging about various experiences and ideas, with the intended audience essentially being other teachers, and to a lesser degree, the general internet audience.

This week we examine another category of teacher blogging, probably best referred to as “classroom blogging”. These are blogs in which teachers blog about classroom activities and experiences, often with students participating and blogging as well. The intended audience here can be the students, parents, other teachers, administrators, and so on.

As with last week’s post, I’ve combed through many examples of classroom blogs and selected a few examples to share here. Nothing illustrates an idea quite like real world examples. Of course, with it being summer, some of these blogs are not particularly active right now, but all of them look like they’re quite active during the school year.

Example Classroom Blogs

Huzzah! - A grade 5 & 6 class of 10 & 11 year old learners, in “the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada”. This is a nice looking site with good use of visuals like pictures, slideshows, and videos. There are also links to student blogs, and a great set of other classroom blogs in the “blogroll” listing on the right side of this page (I would think this right hand column should be visible on the home page too, but it wasn’t – maybe its just a glitch).
