Blogging for professional development

Writing blogs has become a popular tool for everyone to express their opinions nowadays. As a teacher, I would like to communicate and socialize with my students through the Internet. There are few benefits for students to write online. This digital tool allow students to engage in authentic interactions with other students or teachers across distance easily. It’s one of the motivations for students to learn English. Most of them are willing to express their ideas online because they prefer not to talk to teachers face to face. Moreover, they found that it is easier for them to write online because they can do research before they start their writings. On the other hand, computer applications can cater to a variety of learning styles. Students can use different ways to learn independently and learn on their own. Digital tools allow them to explore authentic texts and provide opportunities for them to contribute their ideas to the forum and website.
