The third type of blog that was created is a student reflection blog.

Using the support document, Blogs for Learning … for Students individual students can create their own blog to organize their information and reflect on their inquiry.

A teacher would most likely not utilize all three formats of blogs for during one teaching unit.  However, the blog samples illustrate that based on the teacher’s criteria, blogs can be technology tools for learning.

The second type of blog I created was a collaborative blog for students to interact and communicate about their inquiry. This one is intended to be for members only, the students in the class.

Home Page  @ is a blog in which students can reflect on their learning and collaborate to learn from each other. Students comment on posts, links, research and inquiry as we deepen our understanding about homelessness and poverty.

I created three blogs as models that illustrate the different purposes and functions of a blog. This blog, Home Away from Home is a classroom blog where the teacher can post videos, resource links, review of the class topics, assignments and additional information for students.
