There is still so much to learn about blogging. It is an interesting format for interactive learning. I hope to make it a useful tool in my class.

Mrs. Connor said...

This is very interesting and fun, but I've only got a tenuous grasp.

Mrs. Terrill said...

I like blogging and can see how useful it will be in my classroom. I think the kids will love it and it will be a great way to excite the students about learning. I like the idea of using the site to discuss books; it should rope in resistant readers.

Ms. Louf said...

KT said...
