Due to the rapid development of using Web 2.0 in education, the use of blogs is increasingly being integrated into teaching and learning activities in different subject disciplines. The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether blog writing promotes students’ reflective learning, and enhances students’ knowledge and encourages students’ self-expression. Thirty Year 2 BEd students participated in this study and they were asked to write blogs after each class to express what they had learned, how they had learned it and what they could do next. After analyzing the blogs written in Blogs in Blackboard 9 and conducting a group interview, the results showed that blog writing provides a channel for students to clarify their conceptions, recognize their learning progress and enhance their self-expression.
