Pedagogically, I am always in favor of giving kids choice and enabling them to take control of their own learning. Having a class blog is an excellent tool; it is, though, limited in that students can usually only contribute in a limited manner through the comments. What if all of your students had their own blog, their own space to write reflectively, to think academically, to explore their passions, and to discover their voice? Would this not be a powerful tool?
