Class Blogs

Wednesday Afternoon PD 11 October - Setting up a Class blog

What could a classroom blog look like? It could take the form of:

  • A class web page with weekly updates
  • A blog covering a class topic / inquiry
  • Student blogs used as a vehicle for reflective writing

Blogs don't have to be open to the public - you can limit exposure to as many of few as you like.
Below are a handful of examples.

Year 2/3 Mapua School (near Nelson) This class also has a sticky notes page - great idea...
Or Our Lady of Lourdes school in Palmerson North Another couple from the same school: here and here .
A blog dedicated to the art of classroom displays
Or as a book discussion project - Secret Life of Bees
A Canadian Principal's blog
Or a New Zealand teacher using Flickr to share class photos.

Setting up a blog is easy. I am happy to help on Wednesday afternoon. Here are some instructions:
Edublogs - blogs for Teachers general blog site

Interesting Stuff:
What happens when you put a computer with a fast Internet connection into a wall and let slum children have access to it with no explanation whatsoever?

What is it? Click and see. (Carl Sagan again)
Pale Blue Dot

Interesting websites:

Excellent looking renaissance art site:

Been here before but it's quite fun - roadsign maths.

And a US site on nutrition for for kids.

And finally, a good summary of Web 2.0 and how it will impact teaching and learning.
