A blog gives you your own voice on the web. It's a place to collect and share things that you find interesting— whether it's your political commentary, a personal diary, or links to web sites you want to remember.
Many people use a blog just to organize their own thoughts, while others command influential, worldwide audiences of thousands. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while personal journalers reveal inner thoughts.
Whatever you have to say, Blogger can help you say it.

Within the classroom, this can be a useful tool for integrating the internet into the curriculum. Students can engage with their teachers on various questions and topics. This website is user friendly and easy for children to use!
I would recommend this for any classroom to teach writing, typing, and internet.

My second blog is oriented to undergraduate students. With Blogger, I have found the perfect way, not only to share interesting articles, posts, videos, even pictures, but I also manage to give them updates on things happening on campus. Blogger has helped here since many students do not have Facebook accounts. I usually share my posts with the Facebook account I have opened for exactly this reason.
I found that in some countries blogs are not such a big thing yet, and Blogger has helped me tell people what the rest of the world already knows. But as any major projects, even a small blog needs updating or it just fades away, which proves time consuming.
Even if you don't like working with computers all that much, Blogger makes it easy to intergrate technology to your lessons. All you have to do is write, upload and share. Personalising your work towards your students, really helps.

But the best way that I have used the medium of blogging through the tool Blogger is in the classroom. I encouraged my middle school students to keep a digital journal, also called a blog, that I would have be able to check on the Web (with the proper use of privacy settings). The students had to keep a blog on various topics that I would give them. These topics or prompts would have to be answered, or addressed, by the students in their blog.
My students thought it was a great way to complete their journal writing that was different from the conventional pen and paper. They were also able to see the blogs of other students to read their thoughts. Blogger is easy to access and to use. Teachers and students alike will find it very useful and effective.
How do you use this tool?
