What is Blogging

Reason for Use

  • Blogs are websites in which users post their thoughts, writings, images, widgets, videos, and whatever else they would like to share with a global audience. Then, other users can view and comment on what the author posts. For educational purposes they can be used for:
  • writing - ANY aspect
  • character development
  • journaling
  • creative writing
  • current events
  • class updates/newsletter
  • Conestoga Valley has its own blogging site so all teachers and students have accounts already created
