27 Here’s what some teachers say: “Never in 25 years of teaching have I seen a more powerful motivator for writing than blogs and wikis.” … “And that’s because of the audience. Writing is not just taped on the refrigerator and then put in the recycle bin. It’s out there for the world to see. Kids realize other people are reading what they write” – Mark Ahlness “Even when they’re out sick, students work on their blogs.” – Carol Barsotti “I’ve got 6th graders coming in during their lunch and after school to add articles to their blog and to respond to their classmates’ articles.” – Al Gonzalez “The response has been tremendous. Students seem so much more willing to blog in their own space and time. They seem less inhibited and more enthusiastic.” – Beth Lynne Ritter-Guth
