Teachers, Professors make use of Areavoices in the classroom

One of the trends that I’m loving here on Areavoices is our growth in classroom blogs. Having students publish their schoolwork (as part of their schoolwork) is gaining in momentum.

I’m so glad teachers and professors are seeing the value in having students log into their own blog and publish their thoughts and projects.

Not long ago, I told you how Dr. Julie Mach, an associate professor of chemistry at Concordia College in Moorhead is utilizing Areavoices in her Neurochemistry course. Students are required to post their reflections on topics in Neurochemistry in a way that the everyday reader could understand. (Thanks guys!)

It’s been fun to see the students weigh in and publish their own works.

Now Carrie Anne Platt is utilizing the platform for her Gender and Media class at North Dakota State University. The students were required to set up blogs specifically addressing issues concerning media influence on teens and tweens and their work has been really interesting. Here are just three blogs that stand out:
