I started blogging because I was asked to do it. I was working online and doing some Moocs with Coursera some years ago and we shared our ideas online. I started my first two blogs and I am still writing online.
While learning online I realized that I could blog with my students of English. Blogging is a good way for enabling them to use the language in a meaningful way.
I hope I will use a blog with my students next year. The idea is not new but I do need to rely on students who are willing to read and to work also online. I need to work hard on the content and to find activities that help them reflect online.
You can find some tips here in this interesting interview which was shared online ; the teacher is more engaged and her students too. It must be great to work in a school with such young learners.!
