Blogs build confidence, self-expression and autonomous learning. Even the shyest students can find a voice.

The use of language sets us apart from all other species on the planet, but in our fast pace modern society, sometimes the nurturing of those skills is neglected. Too often the traditional classroom setting does not give students enough opportunities to improve practical communication skills. Educational blogging can help teach students to use words in the appropriate context, learn how to give and take constructive feedback, and carry on productive discussions about the class subject matter. Students are able make comments, correspond through email, and develop bonds through shared interests.
