    I think overall the use of blogs is nice i made a list of pros and cons and the pros are much stronger than the cons and overall its a great idea and more teachers should start going to this or at least something like this.

    1.Interacting with other kids and seeing what there views and opinions are.
    2. Getting an Easy grade
    3.Gets our minds thinking on the topic at hand weather it be math or any other subject in school

    1. Having to have access to a computer all the time
    2. Getting your minds in the the thinking process
    3. I dont like math…well thats just a personal issue.

    I don’t really understand the use of the blog. So, I am not really sure if it’s a good thing for school or not.
    I think that the pros are that it’s an easy assignment grade, it can have useful information on it, and you get to express your opinion without any one gripping.
    I think that the cons are that it’s very easy to forget to comment on the blog and it can be tough to think of what to write.

    I think the use of blogs in school is interesting. It really shows how much times have changed and the amount of technology we use now days. It is cool that the school is changing to meet our needs and likes as students to try and keep us interested and in tune with what were doing. Id say the only con is maybe if someone doesnt have a lot of acess to computers other then at school, becuase finding time in school and using a school computer can sometimes be a hassel. Other than that i think everthing about using online blogs for school is fun and innovative.

    I thought that the blogs were an easy assignment grade but they are very trivial.
    1. Its a change of pace from the same old bookwork every day.
    2. It gives students a way to give theyre opinions and not be chastized
    1. Its sometimes hard to gain access to a computer
    2 This is just another speedbump in a buisy students schedule

    lol I really like the cons there funny. I agree the blogs are easy grades and the computer acess shouldnt be hard because of Best core, or the use of the library. I’m sure any teacher would let you go down to the library to type something quick or look at the question at least think about it and then in another class type it up. theres also a public library. I almost wish everything we did was on the computers, the process is faster and no more wasteing trees! Not that I care that much, I’m not a tree hugger.

    I posted a comment for the last blog, but it’s not there? Did I do it wrong? 😦

    i like the blog idea. it gives us a chance to all talk about a topic and see how everyone feels about it. it is a good way to see how everyone feels about a topic and to get new ideas. Some pros would be- new ideas, ways of communicating with the teacher, and get the thoughts of everyone. Some cons would be- its easy to forget about doing(i know i do), and some times it can be hard to get access to a computer for some people.

    1.for me not easy to remember

    3.can be hard to access a computer

    I think that blogs in school is a great idea. It’s much better than bookwork!! It’s also an easy grade in Geometry, but it hurts the people’s grades who don’t do the blogs.

    1. Easy assignment grade
    2. You get to talk to your friends/peers about things that you usually wouldn’t talk about.

    1. Hard to remember.
    2. Hard to access computer.
    3. Busy schedules.

    Blogs in general are a good thing to have because others can follow and watch what you do, where you go, and how you’re living your life.
    They’re nice because you can tell everyone a story without having to tell it to each individual person.
    The use of a blog for something such as this is not a good idea in my opinion. This is due to the fact that I often forget to post on the blog until Sunday night, such as now. If it were more of an extra credit type of thing, I think that would work out much better.

    I hate the idea of blogs in school as you already know. I can never remember to do them all and it hurts my grade.

    1. Get other students viewpoints

    1. No internet Access
    2. Difficult to Remember
    3. Not enough Time
    4. Don’t really learn anything
    5. Won’t help us in future Life

    as you can see the cons out weigh the pros 5:1 (hey thats a ratio) and sorry but i don’t think they should be a grade just extra credit

    For the blogs I think the Pro’s and Con’s are:
    You get the students opinions
    It’s an easy ten points a week

    The Con’s are mostly my own problems though:
    I almost always forget about the blogs and
    It hurts our grades when we don’t remember and if you don’t have internet access, it’s hard to get into the library during school.
    Although they can be interesting and I get to post my opinions, and I agree with Aaron and they should just be for extra credit points, not homework points
