“Blogs help you develop a voice, a point of view, and an interpretation,” says Cathy N. Davidson, director of the Futures Initiative at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. According to Davidson, blogs are a key component of active learning, a practice where students become the expert through research and activities and share their knowledge with others. Blogs can enable students in “express[ing] one’s own thoughts based on evidence, moving from thinking to expression, moving from expression to interaction and dialogue,” writes Davidson.
