Avoiding the 5 Most Common Mistakes in Using Blogs with Students
I’ve used blogs in my classes for five years with university graduate students. I’ve found them to be extremely helpful in certain circumstances but only when there is clarity for students in their use. Students who object to the inclusion of blogs in a course are usually objecting to what they perceive will be just one more task on top of a myriad of others or simply some busy work that will not benefit their learning. Older students can also reject the notion of “publication” that is inherent with blogging.
