Blogging is a useful component in the english classroom. It is useful because it helps students free-write and share their ideas in ways online that they might not want to in person or in front of their peers. Online, the writer on a blog can often pass as anonymous. Blogging also helps to give you a voice online, and to share your thoughts across the web, to a partially anonymous audience on the web. Blogging also helps you to 'excersise your creativity' (Search Engine Journal, 7 reasons why blogging is still important). Creativity is always and important factor in the english classroom when it comes to writing and the use of descriptive language. Blogging also encourages students to consistently write something a least once a week. It helps bring out the uniqueness of the world more now than ever, with digital media increasing and developing all over the globe. ' It brings ideas out to the public - a lot of people have some pretty unique perspectives. Now, we all get a chance to hear those ideas and explore them.' (Six Pixels of Separation- the Blog). Blogging is, after all something important in the english classroom that encourages students to share what they think, and to involve media into the classroom.
