Why Blogging?

Why Blogging?

A blog or ‘web log’ is an online newsletter or journal that can be shared on the internet.

Blogging is a virtual way by which we can share our news, learning, work and creative pursuits.

Blogging promotes learning skills such as:

  • collaboration
  • communication
  • media literacy
  • information literacy
  • commenting
  • reflection
  • presentation
  • networking
  • digital citizenship

Blogging also strengthens the connection between home, school and the world.

In 4A we each have an iPad. This 1:1 technology allows us to  integrate technology into our learning every day. We use our iPads in Maths, Literacy, Inquiry and even in Art.

  1. Dear Mrs Miller,
    It’s Adam and on the 12th of September was Roald Dahl’s birthday, speaking of Roald Dahl my favourite book by him is Vharlie and the chocolate factory and the BFG.
    My favourite character in Charlie and the chocolate factory is the ompa loompas and in the BFG it is flesh lumper. On the Roald Dahl web page I did the quiz and I turned out as the witch and I was shocked, so if you want to look at my blog here is a link to it. aitfkwea.global2.vic.edu.au
