So what are blogs and why should you care about them?
Blogs - A website that can be routinely updated like a journal and displayed in chronological order. The name is an abbreviation for "Web Log." Some of the earliest blogs were actually online diaries that were available for anyone to read. Blogs can also be interactive. For example, in some blogs anyone who views an entry can also leave a comment. Blogs can be focused on a topic (such as politics, car care, a favorite TV show) or be completely unfocused.

Educators are starting to use blogs as an online discussion tool. For example, a high school social studies teacher might create a discussion blog about current events where students have to look at a political cartoon posted by the teacher and then type a comment into the blog about their opinion about it. Teachers could use blogs to share ideas about educational strategies or just communicate about student discipline problems. Such blogs should probably be kept confidential however.
