Why Use Blogs?

Test Kitchen: I have been using this site in my class for a few months now.  It is a cool gadget that helps engage students.  I have never had any problems with it.  I have not had students make their own yet but, I suppose that it would be really easy to have the students make their own as well.  You don't need to log in to create one but, you can log in and save yours if you want to.  The site is sponsored by the Australian Arts Association but, they don't seem to mind if you use it for your class.  The is one weird thing that it does sometimes when you use long sentences it puts part of the word on one line and the rest on the other line.  Beggars can't be choosers though.

Classroom Applications:
  • Display objectives for the day and announcements.
  • Definitions of words.
  • Choose between different activities.
  • Show examples.
  • Play a game.
  • Use it as dice.
  • Choose a topic.
How to use it:

  1. I love this! I have seen it in your room/on your site(s), and have wondered how to make my own. I'm exploring using it now and placing it on my blog at wwwatanabe.blogspot.com .

    Thanks for the share!
