This source discusses the impact of blogging on a teacher’s students. The author mentions that there is no better medium that helps refine students’ writing and reading skills. Blogs give the students a purpose for reading and writing because an audience is present. The teacher feels it’s more authentic to teach concepts like spelling structures, grammar, and writing skills, in the context of writing on a class blog. She also claims that blogs are always present so students can access these lessons whenever they want to. This ultimately enables them to be able to improve greatly and transfer these skills to other areas of study.
