Why a Blog is a Wonderful Vehicle for Reflection

A key component of being a learner and a constructivist educator is reflection. A blog is perfect for this because it allows one to organize his/her thoughts in a shared written expression.

It allows an audience member to come to it in his/her own time/space and share further reflections thereby creating a dialogue.
