ATL Area: Communication

ATL Skill: Use appropriate forms of writing for different purposes and audiences

A great way to communicate online is by creating a blog. Blogging is like writing a diary, where you can see a development of thoughts over time. A blog allows you to provide information for other people and share opinions regarding the work you have been doing in class. It is also a great way to identify appropriate writing styles for different audiences. Tip: You can also upload videos and pictures into your blog!
