English language-learners can benefit from blogging

Recently, Edutopia published Blogging for English-Language Learners, a post by Rusul Alrubail about how blogging can have a positive effect on students who are learning the English language.  After highlighting the benefits, Alrubail provides tips on how to start blogging in these environments – for students and classrooms.  She also provides some links to other resources for getting started.  She stresses that, before having students blog, the instructor should explain the benefits.  “This will inform how they learn through it,” she explains.  “When students understand the benefits of the process, they become engaged and active in their own learning.”
