Blog Application #5: Classroom Tool

So you're probably wondering, what are applications # 1-4?

Well, as I opined in this entry, currently they're used for:

1. Political Punditry

2. Online Navel Gazing

3. Personal Publishing

I think they are also a terrific:

4. Marketing and Customer Service Tool

And now apparently, some teachers are using blogs as a handy classroom tool. [Reg. required after one week.]

I especially like how the blogs level the playing field between kids who are naturally dominant or extroverted and kids who tend to be shyer, more passive, quieter in class. Apparently online everyone feels free to dive right in.

Kinda cool.
