Reaction to Internet Workshop and Blog Publishing

Internet Workshop and Blog Publishing, talks about how it is social studies teachers’ job to teach students to be “effective citizens”; aside from the fact that I’m not really sure what is meant by that phrase, I believe that it is every teacher’s job to help their students become something like an “effective citizen.”  As most of us know by now, there is more to being a teacher than just teaching 2 + 2 = 4.  Helping students grow into, [I hate to keep using this term, but] for the lack of a better term, “effective citizens.”  I tend to agree with this article in the idea of the increased use of technology and blogs that is currently happening.  I imagine it is in the not-to-distant future that many classes will be run like this one, completely through the internet.  Whether that is a good thing or not is beside the point.  It is important for future teachers to become more competent and comfortable with this type of technology and information.
