Research on Weblogs: Positive Impact on Students

on June 23, 2012

Okay reading on, Fernette & Eide’s Neurolearning Blog (2005) research on Weblogs in schools, in that it : promotes critical & analytical thinking; nurtures creative, intuitive, & associational thinking; analogical thinking; a medium for increasing access & exposure to quality information; combines the best of solitary reflection & social interaction.

A ton of schools have adopted this as part of the curriculum creating a safe-space within their portals. Older students are able to use it with ease. My thoughts are with adequate scaffolding, primary learners (who are so tech savvy) will enjoy putting their literacy skills to work, thus keeping up with the times.
