Blogger is a great tool for allowing students to interact with each other by viewing and commenting on their blog posts.

How I Use It
I used this site for students to post essays, position papers, notes, and reports. Students then reviewed fellow student work and offered constructive criticism, comments, or suggestions. Blogger can be used as an online science notebook where students can store information, recover missed work, and post information that can be seen by the general public. Students were confused at first between creating a new blog and a new post, so some new blogs were created unnecessarily. Placement of pictures in a particular place in the post was also very limited.
My Take
I like this site as a teaching tool because it allows students to share information with each other and people outside the classroom. Students can create reports that include pictures, embedded videos, and links to other internet sites. It could serve students and teachers better by making the placement of pictures easier and making the creation of new posts less confusing.
