Give Your Students 5 Reasons to Read Your Blog

Foster a learning community! Engage your students by writing your own blog.

Are you worried your students will not read your blog and it will be a waste of time?
Make it a destination students want to visit.

Give your students 5 reasons they need to visit your blog often:

1. Participate in Online Surveys

Involve students in decision-making. Design a poll to gain their feedback. For example, ask an open-ended question such as “Where should we go on our next school trip?”, “What kind of fundraiser should we host?”, or “What rules should we have for our classroom this year?” Have students post their response using comments.

NOTE: TechnoQuestionnaire is a technology project with step-by-step instructions to conduct a survey and interpret results using Google Forms.

2. Access Class Assignments

Make it easy for your students to access worksheets, review requirements, or recall a deadline. Manage assignments by posting a class calendar, outlines, and handouts to the blog.

3. Connect with Online Resources

Give your students access to useful resources. Create links to online reference tools such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, and thesauruses, educational websites, instructional videos, homework helpers, and more!

4. Engage in Classroom Discussions

Use a blog post as a question and answer board. Pose one or more thought-provoking questions about current subject matter. Students respond using the comments feature.

5. Gain Easy Access to School Information

Make it convenient for your students to get information about school related topics. Post a calendar of school events or links to important documents. For example, classroom guidelines, code of conduct, or learning objectives.

Students become bloggers.
