When I began to think about this topic I was at first apprehensive. I thought of blogging as kids using MySpace.com and sharing too much information with strangers. After further thought and looking at the ways blogs can be used, I have changed my thinking. I think that there could be positive ways to use this medium. The fact is that students are going to be exposed to blogging some time in their life and it may be a good idea for teachers to use it in an educational way. Teachers could use blogs for responses to literature, book reviews, or ways to publish traditional writing assignments. As with other forms of technology it would give students a meaningful reason to write.
