Blogging is a great way for students and teachers to connect. By using blogs, the teacher has the opportunity introduce students to a new media. On many circumstances, students will be careful what they write and say in classroom for fear of ridicule of their classmates. By using blogging's anonymousity, students are more likely to be open about their lives and personal issues. Livejournal's tools are also great for organization and seeing how a student has grown over the semester. A teacher can use blogging to keep all the many things that are discussed in class in order.
