The vision of Castlemaine North PS’s use of ICT is to link students within, across and beyond schools. Our success in the latter two has been documented in the media (http://www.thenorthschool.com/?page_id=277) and has happened largely through our hosting of a social blogging platform called Buddypress.
To build upon our work with social blogging and connecting kids across schools, we are currently inviting students from around the world with an interest in writing to join our Writer’s Club, http://thenorthschool.com/writersclub . This site is for students who are passionate about any sort of writing, and would like to share their writing with a wider audience. It may be a site for your strongest writers to gain exposure for their writing and be exposed to the writing of other budding authors in schools around the world.
Participating students will receive a blog to share their work. There is no cost to do this and no advertising appears on our site.
If you are interested in providing your students with an opportunity to share their writing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Since sharing this initiative, we are now up to schools in four countries. If you have students that would like a global audience for their writing, email me at email@example.com .
We organize Hindi classes at various locations in California.
