Brief Description of a Homework Blog
A homework blog is a blog where pupils post their homework. This section of the blog can be used to ask pupils to upload their homework assignments onto their blog. This offers many affordances to both the teacher and the pupils, these include:
- There is a record of every homework assignment that each pupil has completed and submitted
- The exact time and date that each assignment was submitted is easily read in the time stamp of each post
- The pupil can see his/her progression throughout their course of study. This will lead to a greater sense of achievement as their work improves
- Asking pupils to submit some/all of their homework online improves pupils' technological literacy which is important in today's knowledge economy
