How I Use It
I use it with students as a tool to discuss classroom technology assignments and lessons, record their learning, practice manipulating files and creating gadgets. Students create and share a blog with me and post progress notes for ongoing assignments and discuss their learning. I use it for evaluating student progress.
Blogger is a template based blog program in the Google applications. It is free and has a limited number of templates for students to design their own site. It is not terribly intuitive for making changes or adding elements for first time blog creators. Blogs may be share universally, kept private, or shared with only specified email accounts.
