  8. Reflective Statement on Assignment • It was very interesting to me to find out about blogging. I always just thought that you had to go to someone else’s website to blog. After doing this I found out that there were quite a few different places to go and make up your own site. I do feel that this could help if you needed someone to talk. I feel like the students and children could learn from each others blogs but must take extra caution when doing so.

  9. Lessons Learned • Blogging is a very useful tool to keep you connected. • Not only can you just write a blog but there are such websites as Smilebox that allows you to make up scrapbooks and slide shows to post on your blog. • There is a site called Spellery were you can type a word and make sure it is spelled correctly. This is very important to me because I ‘m a bad speller.
