For our January 2014 installment of Technology in Transit, Baoying Fu demonstrated how teachers can use blogging to manage classrooms and assignments, and increase class participation and parental engagement. She showcased services such as Svbtle, Kidblog and Edublog as tools which help to expand the classroom by allowing students to review and comment on lessons, and practice what they have learned in settings like ESL classrooms.
