Nina's Blog: Why do we blog? Blogging is a way to connect to th...:
As Nina stated, we blog in order to voice our opinions and allow anyone, anywhere in the world to see.
Technology is so relevant today and blogging is a great way for people to learn from each other. I believe that the best learning happens in a group where people are connected. We are constantly connected to those around us because of cell phones, laptops and tablets that blogging just makes sense!
I think that blogging is also a great tool to use in schools, with youth, for many different reasons. First, it is a great way to get students connected to other students from different schools or different states. It allows them to visualize the world outside of their city or town.
I think blogging is also a great way to get students more comfortable with technology. Like with many things, the more you use it, the better you become! Blogging can also play a large role in enhancing the writing skills of students. By blogging, they are getting experience with different types of writing. They are also reading which can play a large role in learning writing techniques. They can learn from one another by reading and commenting on their classmates blogs.
This blog is my first blog. At first, I was very apprehensive about the idea of blogging, but I have come to really enjoy it. I love seeing what other students think about particular readings or topics. It's a great way to view everyone's thoughts and insights, even those who are on the shy side!
