Edublogs has passed 1,000,000 blogs. Pretty dang cool! That is a lot of education happening out in cyberland. I know that I use this blog as a true extension of my class. Each and everyday, my photo students log onto the blog to see what will be happening in class. The students also see if anything is due, as well as what will be happening in the near future in the class.
I also have a prompt question that requires the students to do some reading and then they write a reply to the question, so each day in my photography class they are getting reading and writing.
The blog is also very beneficial as parents can follow along to see what is happening in the class. I have become hooked on edublog and could not imagine my class without it.
