I am a student at a middle school in Indiana, and I am part of a laptop pilot program to use laptops in class. My English/ Literature teacher, Mrs. Plantan, gave each of us Edublogs blogs to use. We use them personally, and also to answer questions in class. I like having my own blog, because I can express myself through writing and get my thoughts on the web. Mrs. Plantan has all of our blogs on her Google Reader, so she knows everything that we post and grades them that way. I believe that the blogs are a great use of controlled freedom.
