For some reason, I'm not the biggest fan of exposing my thoughts for the world to see. I don't like the idea that billions of people could be potentially reading my blog... I'm sure they're all running to their computers as I type. ( Catch my sarcasm?! It's kind of hard to be cynical when blogging..So sue me.)
Although I'm not the biggest fan of exposing my own ideas, I think it's a GREAT opportunity for our students. Blogging is notorious for giving the less vocal people a voice. It's your chance to speak your mind and I think that our students need and would benefit from that!!!!
In high school, a few of my friends were very active bloggers and I loved following them! It was fun to read their thoughts and it was always fun responding to their posts.
I haven't explored Edmodo too much, but it sounds awesome!!! From my understandings, it's similar to facebook and I think the kids would definitely find it extremely relatable!! I could see this resource being applied in our any of the classrooms that I co-teach in.
