As you can see from my previous post, the email directly to blog post worked! I’m very excited about this feature in blogger.
The way that Ramsey is implementing this in his classroom is he is having his students write blog posts (as reflections) at the end of each lesson / learning activity. He has them write emails that post directly to their blogs. Blog postings are typically part of their homework and students are expected to describe the learning activity and summarize what they’ve learned. Students are also encouraged to ask questions about things they aren’t fully understanding.
I love this feature because it will allow students to use whatever they are comfortable emailing with to create their blog posts.
