Planned an elearning workshop for today. Oops, forgot it was valentines day! Turn out was less than usual but productivity was high. English, history, law and re have now got a student blog started.
Hopefully these will really take off in school and the message will spread.
Blogging is an easy way to share ideas, resources and work. Students create rather than consume and once the blog is set up there is very little work for the teacher to do. Once it is established the students should begin to question each others posts and the whole thing should organically expand.
The possibilities are endless, it taps into devices that students have on them all of the time and it should extend learning!
