Three months later, and I am still learning so much from blogging! I never would have thought I would get enjoyment out of discussing educational related topics. This semester in one of my English classes we were asked to blog about anything literacy, education, or technology related. After reading my past posts, it is not hard to tell that I have been new to this whole blogging thing. I have been enjoying blogging the more I do it and the more I engross myself in all it has to offer. I think blogging is a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest education news. I have learned so much not just from my own blogs, but from reading other blogs about education and technology. Not only students, but teachers as well can learn a lot from blogging. The downfall about having to blog for one of my college courses is the fact that we were assigned certain things to talk about. Even though we were able to pick the education related topic, it was not as free as it normally would be. I am excited to take what I learned from this class and apply it to blogs that will now be free writes about anything!
Blogging has been a great opportunity to share ideas with other students. Getting feedback from my peers made it more enjoyable as well. Being part of the blogging community made it pleasurable to blog weekly and share ideas.
Part of becoming a professional is being knowledgeable about technology and constantly doing research on what would make the classroom environment effective. Blogging is a great way to share information with others and allows one to read other blogs on important issues or new tools to use. I would like to continue to blog because it is a great way to find out more about education and different tools to use in the classroom. It allows me to take the time and actually think about what is most important or what interest me. I may not blog as often, but I definitely think blogging is beneficial for people who want to learn more, and grow as a writer.
