 When I become a teacher I think blogging will be a good way to connect with the students. It will give the students the oppertunity to write what they feel and what  they need to express. It might be better for those students who don’t speak up in the classroom and it gives everyone an equal oppertunity. Also, I think it is a good and new way for students to learn and it may be exciting for them because they may not of done it before so it may interest them more than the regualr things teachers do. I also think I, being a teacher, can learn from it too. I can learn from the students and beome a better all around teacher.
