Can Teachers Use Blogging to Make Better Writers?

Liz Dwyer:

The desire for reader feedback keeps the students excited about wanting to write more posts, and they’re eager to improve their writing skills for their readers’ benefit. “They now have a worldwide forum instead of an audience of one,” Christens said, noting that the students “see themselves as writers—real writers.”

Absolutely wonderful.

Justin has been around the Internet long enough to remember when people started saying “content is king”.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.

  1. I started teaching my students to blog back in the early 90’s. I called them “logs,” but they were really early blogs—back before any of us were on-line. So interesting to note now how many of my former students have blogs—and write such interesting posts.
