Blog, short for web log, is an online personal journal accessible to anybody with an Internet connection. Millions use it to share their experiences and opinions on a wide variety of topics.
A teacher can use her blog to post the class’ topic for the day — a big help to students trying to catch up and to parents wanting to help their children at home. It can even include Powerpoint slides, discussion outline, and links to other resources on the Internet. Eventually, a teacher’s blog could contain a school year’s worth of materials for use in succeeding years.
School administrators can also use blogs to post their announcements and to solicit feedback from the school community.
