We will offer ideas to "jump start" your thinking and hope you will share your ideas as you learn how to use web 2.0 tools. 


If you've ever kept a diary or a journal, you know the basics of blogging. On a regular basis, you write new entries (we call these posts). Blogging serves much the same purpose as traditional journals, but they go one step further. Blogs can be a place to reflect and organize your thoughts with others via comments on your posts. It's a way to start a conversation with people who are interested in the same ideas you are!




There are many different platforms to choose from! Shop around and see which site appeals best to you.





Blogs created with these platforms are more versatile and can accommodate more customization. They have all the basic features, but also allow advanced users to tinker “under the hood” if that’s important to you. Choose one of these if you’re looking to kick it into high gear!


*For this course, we will use BLOGGER to make our blogs.* Please watch this tutorial video: https://youtu.be/rKVQKQxxUlk to refresh your mind, if you've forgotten from class.
