Wow, I'm actually really excited to have my very own blog up and running. I also love how easy and quick it was. I am always amazed at how many free tech services are now available on the Internet. I will look forward to playing around with it more and adding additional features and posts. For my research project in this class I will be looking at blogging in the classroom and hopefully how it relates to students' writing skills and engagement. I think it would be a lot of fun to try using blogs in my own classroom in the near future. There are a ton of how to articles out there but I am surprised at the lack of empirical studies on students in the K - 12 grades. If anyone has some great empirical study that relates to my topic I would love for you to post it here for me!
