How to get young people to develop a taste for writing, reading and, consequently, learning, and this for the whole of life? Dr. Patricia Fioriello suggests starting with a blog!

For Dr Patricia Fioriello, encouraging young people to blog helps them to love writing, therefore to love reading and, all of this put together, to love learning! She recalls, in her article " How Blogging Can Help Reluctant Writers Published on the Edudemic site, that writing is a process, and that the skills inherent can be applied to many aspects of schooling. Let's go see more details.

First, the author indicates that blogging allows students to make connections between different subjects. This seems particularly important if the student does not like a particular subject. Writing can help find connections between topics that initially seemed completely unrelated.

Next, she believes blogging encourages students to take control of their emotions, to take part in some kind of creative therapy. Compared to social networks that are a race for popularity, blogging becomes a personal and positive experience to express yourself.

Blogging also improves writing skills, according to Dr. Fioriello. Constructive feedback from the teacher or the community promotes improved grammar and sentence structure, which in turn increases reading skills. Ultimately, it assumes that students who understand what they are reading find greater satisfaction in this activity.

She suggests that the teacher be a blogger himself so that he can share his passion for writing with the students.

However, she does not really talk about the value of writing on a technological medium versus a personal "paper" journal, but we understand that the whole thing lies in the feedback. You can find out more about its activities by visiting its site KidsLearnToBlog.com, dedicated particularly to the integration of the blog as a tool with 13 years old and under.
