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.
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.
