The use of weblogs for students on an international placement

The aim of this article is to provide
readers with a snapshot look at the world
of weblogs and how they can be utilized
to support student nurses in preregistration
education while on an international
clinical placement.
A blog is shorthand for a frequently
updated weblog and is an online, chronological
collection of personal commentary
and links called posts. Blogs are
useful educational tools because they facilitate
social interaction in teaching and
learning and enable learners to collaboratively
develop their knowledge through
reflection, analysis, and feedback from
others.
