This paper describes how a blogging exchange between pre-service teachers and elementary school children was used as part of a social studies pedagogy course. The objective of this exchange was to develop the pre-service teachers’ understanding of children’s differing learning needs, interests and learning styles while the children were immersed in developing subject-specific content knowledge. The experience was mutually beneficial for both the children and the pre-service teachers. Recommendations include increased emphasis on training both pre-service teachers and children on how to use blogs and how to frame questions and responses prior to incorporating a blogging experience.
