Communication is a basic skill that is increasingly required as communities become “wired” in the 21st Century. A classroom blog gives teachers a means to communicate with parents and also gives the student the opportunity to prepare materials for the web. Teachers are fortunate these these days to have so many free and easy to use online software choices!
Now that many parents are used to turning to the Internet for information, they are expecting to find school and classroom information online. Students are very excited to learn that they can show their parents at home (or on a trip to the local public library) what they are learning about in school.
