Uses for blogs

The value of blogs lies in being

  • a diary/journal record
  • able to link to other sites on the internet
  • able to read and reflect on what others have written
  • an easy way in to having your own website

Obviously, the way that you use a blog is tailored to the needs and interests of your learners. Bearing this in mind, here are a few of the ways we have seen blogs in use.

  • Students put up lyrics of songs/poems they like and explain why
  • Students write about things that are important to them eg. sports, their family
  • Mystery guest - students have to guess who the mystery guest is online
  • Students review a language learning website
  • To support collaborative activity ie. share the workload and put your work on blog so all can see

You're only limited by your imagination...
