Many college and high school educators see the potential benefits of blogging, such as increased peer-to-peer learning and student-instructor contact, but need guidance about how to implement instructional blogging from a technical and instructional perspective. Filling that need is Blogs for Learning (http://www.blogsforlearning.msu.edu), a robust community-based online resource dedicated to providing instructors and students with information about the technical and pedagogical aspects of blogging within the classroom. Blogs for Learning features The Learning Curve, a discussion blog where students and teachers can talk about blogging in the classroom, and a library of articles written by teachers, noted academics, and students discussing the pedagogical, legal, and technical aspects of educational blogging. The site also includes a collection of how-to interactive tutorials designed to help educators and students with the more technical aspects of working with a blog.
