The reason this teacher blogs is because she thinks that this way other students can comment on their friends work, safe palce to learn about the internet, learning a new form of communication, a chance to view new cultueres and parents and family can be involved in their work.
This teacher is saying that its benefitial for students, its safe because he can edit inappropriate comments, and it also is good for the parents because they can check on what their child is doing in the classroom.
This teacher blogs because she finds it a new and exciting way to keep in touch with other teachers.
I think that blogging will be impotant in my teaching career because it will keep me connected with my students and their parents. The parents will be able to see whats going on in the classroom and can ask questions at anytime. It will also be good for my students to be learning new technology.
