I think that this assingment was overall very good for several reasons. One of the most important of these reasons was that if we were absent we could learn what we missed. Another was hat many of us practiced writing in English and giving a summary of what we did in class. It also helped us to study for tests. However there were many negatives to this assingment. When you wanted to put photos in your scribe post, you had very little freedom to do what you want, meaning that blogger doesn't allow much freedom in posting. Another was that the comments were pretty much all the same, and weren't too helpful. In conclusion: i didn't really like this assingment, but i do think it is helpful for those absent or wanting to recap what happend last class.

In the begining, I didn't really know how to use it, but as soon as I got the hang of it, it was fun.
In my opinion, it was a lot of fun using Blogger! I'm sure it was also very helpful for the people who were absent, or missed a science class. They could easily see what we did while they were gone. Or if there was some information that wasn't clear to them in class, maybe they understood it better from reading their peer's blog post.

My impressions about Blogger are mostly positive. I think the idea of introducing Blogger in our student’s daily life is good. Blogger is a great way for people who are sick to know what happened in class. It also helps clarifies some things you couldn’t understand in class. It is also a way to learn. I also like the fact that Blogger’s interface is easier and nicer than the one in Moddle. Blogger is also like a general base of everything we covered in Science, it is here if you want to print some courses you lost a long time ago. For the negative effect one of them is that Blogger can sometimes don’t save what you wrote in comment which makes it pretty annoying. But in overall all the comments arrive safely to Ms. D. An other negative things about Blogger is the picture manager which is very frustrating, you can’t do everything by yourself, you have to use some standard created by Blogger which decrease the liberty that you want to put in your post.

Looking back, the blogging was actually quite helpful to people who were sick and just generally for getting a grasp into the world of blogging. No matter how complicated and frustrating Blogger gets at times I think everyone should be exposed to this form of sharing work. For me, it helped a lot when I was sick or on CEESA trips because I could just go look on blogger and find out what we did in class. However, Blogger does not only have positives. This quarter I had to use a different computer at home and this computer always signed me out of blogger when I clicked “view blog”. As a result, I had to post almost every blog comment and scribe post at school in the mornings as it was impossible to post from the other computer.
Other than that blogging went quite smoothly over the course of the 4th quarter; especially now that we know what we actually have to do. One last thought is that this blog will be extremely helpful when we want to study for our science final, because it roughly outlines what we did,provides information and an general overview. All in all, blogging went smoothly with a few faults here and there.
