Interactive Educational Blogs: Used in K-12

Mary Robelyn Bagtas for EDUC 639

Educational blogs also known as, Edublogs, can be authored by a learner, teacher or administrator (IGI Global, 2021). It is a great way to share tips or learn new concepts in one’s own pace. There are multiple educational blogs that can be used in K-12 to increase engagement and digital citizenship of students. Below is a video that analyzes and critiques three interactive educational blogs such as KQED: MindShift, Education Post, and Hot Lunch Tray. The presentation highlights what each educational blog is, how it is used, its advantages and disadvantages.
