I haven't always been the biggest fan when it came to technology, as i believe that students become solely reliable on the use of computers, tablets etc. After reading this particular article, I think being able to use educational programs and technology will make the children more willing and able to learn because it makes learning more fun to do because were not just writing everything and reading everything out of a textbook were interacting through media. Many people believe that technology-enabled project learning is the ne plus ultra of classroom instruction. Learning through projects while equipped with technology tools allows students to be intellectually challenged while providing them with a realistic snapshot of what the modern office looks like. Through projects, students acquire and refine their analysis and problem-solving skills as they work individually and in teams to find, process, and synthesize information they've found online.

I think it is absolutely wonderful that all students are given the opportunity to work with tablet PCs and blogging. Unfortunately, my students are in a district where we are not as lucky. However, I have tried blogging with my sixth grade students on a smaller level. I absolutely love the guideposts and etiquette that were included. I had noticed my first time around, my students really do not understand the difference between "text lingo" and proper English, or when to use caps lock and when it's not necessary. I definitely feel that next year, I need to put much more effort into teaching the proper etiquette. Out of curiosity, how would student created blogs and responses be assessed?
