This article is about the different types of technology being used for educational purposes. It gives an overview about all of them, including blogging. It states how many people have blogs and how many people use them. It makes sure to talk about how the effects of blogging in the classroom setting is for the most part anecdotal, meaning that it varies depending on each situation. That is because that it is a relatively new teaching tool. The study wanted to answer these two questions:
RQ1: What are differences among students’ perceptions regarding the educational benefits of writing a blog entry vs. reading other students’ blogs vs. reading other students’ comments?
RQ2: What are student perceptions of the experience of blogging as an educational activity?
