# Community Connect Blogs
Community Connect Thursday 12th May 8pm
This week we will look at Blogs!
Blogs have been adopted by mainstream internet users and most blogs focus on a specific topic thanks in part to free hosts such as Blogger and WordPress .
“Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is the term used to describe web sites that are an ongoing chronicle of information.
Why are Blogs valuable pedagogy?
We will also look at this from both the teacher and student prospective.
Junita Lyon and Helen Doyle will also discuss how they have used blogs in their classroom practice.
Join us Thursday 12th May at Community Connect
