Journal #6: Blogging NETS II, V
Blogging is an online shared journal where people can post diary entries about their personal hobbies or experiences. It can be used as a social network since many may comment and reply to others blogs. It is a great tool for engaging in similar discussion with people. I checked the thread "Great Classroom Blogs" and thought was cool that teachers are sharing classroom blogs so it can give students and teachers similar techniques and discussions. The person asked teachers to put up blogs that they thought as being great in order to encourage her peers to make blogs. I liked cheking out the "Virtual World" which was made by solely 5th graders, it had different cool posts where students learned how to do things by story telling. There was some nifty ways to teach kids things which help them enjoy assignments. http://www.boxoftricks.net/ Someone also suggested this site which does have general knowledge on how to use tech things. I also looked at "How can i link my Word document onto my blog?" and it had different ways like using scribd to embed, or use "clouds" kind of online storing like Adrive.com and getdropbox.com, it also adviced to place your word document into google docs and just place a link that people can access to that document.
