Technology these days is present in nearly every field of the students’ lives. We enjoy the benefits of its use, especially in the field of education. More specifically, access to internet has dramatically transformed both teaching and learning and, therefore, teaching methodologies have faced more questions. One of these questions is whether educational blogging can be utilised as an innovative teaching tool to achieve curricular goals. There is a growing corpus of literature on blogs as an effective learning tool in education, and evidence has shown that educational blogging is not a new phenomenon. Considering these observations, the discussion centres on how blogging in an educational setting produces several benefits. In the same vein, the paper also explores the disadvantages of blogging in this setting. Discussions highlight the fundamental implications for professional development in pedagogical uses of educational blogging.
