How I Use It
Teacher can maintain personal blog for updates and reflections. Students can use blogs as responses to literature and the comments section for continuing student-driven discussion. This can be a great supplement for "flipped classroom" lessons. In other words, after watching the flipped classroom video, students could then be instructed to participate in an online discussion before attending class.
My Take
I teach in a 1:1 iPad situation. If you were teaching in a similar situation, you could have every student download the app and then create a blog . Students could blog responses to literature of many varieties. Teacher could then facilitate student-driven discussion through the comments section.
