How can blogs work for teachers in the classroom?

As you write blogs for publication and/or read blogs, have you considered how you can use blogs to make your classroom a better learning environment?


I read an insightful blog post in Free Technology for Teachers that addressed this topic:  "Making Educational Blogging Work for You" by Kathleen Morris, a grade four teacher in Victoria, Australia. 

What do you think of Morris' observations in her blog? 

Richard Byrne  wrote a blog in Tech & Learning (November 15, 2013) on "How to Set Yourself Up for Classroom Blogging Success" in which he clearly outlined the steps a teacher should follow in setting up classroom blogs.


Do you have any steps to add from your own experience?

Byrne also shared his thoughts in Tech & Learning (December 16, 2012) on "Three Approaches to Classroom Blogging"--distributing, discussing, and demonstrating.  He elaborated on each approach and offered links for greater understanding.


Do you see possibilities for incorporating one or more of these approaches to using blogging in your classroom?

Do you have tips or opinions to share that will encourage teachers to use blogging as an instructional tool?

Is there a particular blog posted in the Community that caught your attention?  Why?
