Abstract

This chapter introduces the use of blogs as an educational technology in the K-12 classroom. It argues that blogs can be used to promote verbal, visual, and digital literacy through storytelling and collaboration, and offers several examples of how educators are already using blogs in school. This chapter also reviews issues such as online privacy and context-setting, and ends with recommendations for educators interested in implementing blogs with current curricula.
