I'm considering having my class write blogs this year. They would have a topic of their choice and have to post 2 times a month. Since we only meet once a week, it will not be extensive but I'm thinking it is a way to incorporate lots of Web 2.0 tools.
Any suggestions or concerns that I should be considering? I am presenting my ideas to my principal tomorrow.
Also looking for a class, that we could look at for ideas, and that the kids could read and make comments on.
so my students have begun blogging and most of them have at least a few posts. They are created in edublogs, and so far I love how it works, it's been easy and very customizable for the students.
my main blog is at mrswaldal.edublogs.org and the students pages are listed to the right
I'm not sure how to personally reply to you, or if this becomes a discussion topic again. I was wondering what blog site you used. I have six classes with 160 students total. I'd like to have a blog site for each class, administer it, but also have students create their own blogs. I've looked at some of the blogs from this site, and they have all their students on their blog home page listed and in alphabetical order. I would like to find an easy site to create and have this feature.
If you are referring to her edublogs URL, then I can help answer. I use edublogs as well at http://techmunoz.edublogs.org and I also have listed all my students who blog on the left side. I pay $15 every 3 months for the edublog supporter membership which allows the number of students that I wanted to have their own blog. Once all of their blogs are set up, I add their URL to my blogroll to have them listed as they appear on my main page of my blog. Edublogs has a FAQ or help area that tells you how to do this. Hope that helps some. http://edublogs.org
