5 Most Common Mistakes in Using Blogs with Students

Avoiding the 5 Most Common Mistakes in Using Blogs with Students
Ruth Reynard

The author describes his experience with using blogs in graduate-level classes. He believes that they can be very useful in learning, but only when the students actually believe the same thing as well. The ones that are disinclined to use blogs, he has found, see them as either more busy work or dislike the aspect of making their ideas public. Their objections stem from the five common mistakes he has identified and he explains how to deal with each one. The five mistakes are:

  1. Ineffective Contextualization
  2. Unclear Learning Outcomes
  3. Misuse of the environment
  4. Illusive grading practices
  5. Inadequate time allocation

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
