One of my twin daughters is now all married... and all the family is gone. So - now I can get started on learning more about blogs, wikis and other such things that I've heard about but have never really used. When I took five of our Odyssey of the Mind teams to World Competition in Ames, Iowa - I "blogged" our trip on Facebook. I took tons of pictures and wrote about the days activities. It was a lot of fun - but parents were forced to sign up with Facebook in order to follow the blog. I would like to have had another option (I will for next year!)
One of my main obstacles will be to convince our school IT department to allow me access to various sites that are currently blocked by our firewalls and filters. I'm sure that if I do all of my homework - and have all my ducks in a row - I will be able to convince them to allow the various sites that I'm requesting.
I've watched one of the webinars on wikis... now I need to watch the others. I'm interested in learning a lot more. Now I've got the time - so I'll be in the learning mode!!
