Using Our Blogs For Collaboration

Posted in My Portfolio tagged , at 10:06 am by izzatrinbago

Blogs have become a widely used tool in a variety of industries and educational settings. It is a useful way to highlight someone’s thoughts, personal reflection about what is important to an individual. In this class our blogs can be used to obtain information that we would not normally have thought about and it provides a range of perspectives on topics that are spotlighted in the media, current events and other.

Students can participate in cooperative learning allowing the class to communicate ideas or suggestions about particular topics garnering instant audience and feedback. 

We can use our blogs for collaborative discussions and projects.  Students can reflect on assignments and provide insights on what was read, discussed, raising questions, and sparking authentic conversations thus extending the lesson.

Our blogs can serve as a depository of ideas and topics to support and to promote communication, inquiry, for peers and colleagues to refer to and access readily from anywhere. 

Students can post an image, video or link to another online source which can be analyzed in relationship to how it applies to the course content.
