Teacher-Created, Teacher-Centered Weblogs: Perceptions and Practices


Journal of Computing in Teacher Education Volume 23, Number 1, ISSN 1040-2454


This paper describes the findings of a qualitative research study examining the perceptions and practices of inservice teachers who blog. Open-ended interviews and electronic dialogues were conducted with 16 K-12 bloggers to identify emergent themes. A content analysis of each participant's Weblogs was conducted to confirm these findings. Findings suggest that when used by teachers, Weblogs can promote 1) reflective practice, and 2) collaboration and social interaction among users. Ethical issues related to the use of Weblogs are discussed as well. Reporting of this data may assist in forming a deeper understanding of the perceptions and practices related to teacher created, teacher centered Weblogs. (Contains 1 table.)
