Blogging in the Classroom

As part of my master’s class, I am looking for ways to incorporate blogging into my art classes.  There are an amazing number of ways to use blogs in the class.

One way is to create a showcase for student artwork.  I can upload the student’s work, and explain the process and/or standards met.

Another option is to create a “this week in art” or “this day in art,” to give the kids a chance to learn about Art History outside of the classroom.

On the other hand, it would be very interesting to get the kids involved and invested in a blog.  I would really like a discussion to occur, rather than me simply posting for them.  I think blogs are a great way to post ideas, opinions, thoughts without actually saying them outloud in front of a classroom- much less intimidating!

I’m always open to suggestions!
