Class Blogs – Why not start one up?

Posted by watseducation on September 1, 2008

Have you considered setting up a class blog?

You should give it a whirl!

Using wordpress.com you can set up blogs for free! It is quick and easy to do, register, choose a name and away you go!

You can have as many as you want and can set them up for every class, teacher, TA, and even the school council!

It is a great way to encourage writing – Boys love it! (Mind you so do the girls!)

It is something new to most children and because it is ICT and Web based it gets them where they live!

You can set homework, give activities, webquests, communicate with parents and children, post resources, weblinks, newsletters, almost anything you can imagine!

Once you build it up it is amazing how many hits you can get from all across the Web!

If you want any advice, get in touch or comment here – you DO NOT need to be a computer whizz to be successful!

Have a Go!

I was searching…as we do at this time of year for someone elses planning on which to base mine!

I stumbled, literally, across this site:

You have to be logged in to browse and download and you gain credits for download by uploading your own stuff – but found some really nifty stuff!

I recommend a look!
