Educational leaders can use blogs for many different things. Blogs are an easy way to get students to journal without calling it journaling. Students hate to write free hand, but love to type on a computer. Blogging also forces the students to read and interpret what's on the blog. It also allows for teachers and students to capture their own thinking over time and share their thought with other students or teachers. Blogs can also have different formats that normal writing just can't produce. For example, students and teachers can put images, pictures, text boxes, and links to other students or researchers that you can't do with normal writing. Blogging is a great untapped tool for administrators, teachers, and students to use to capture their thoughts and ideas on the internet. It is virtually an"Online Diary"for the blogger and its readers.
