Making use of Blogs for teaching and learning
What is a Blog (Weblog), how do you make one and what can they be used for? ... we will answer all of these and you will create one in real time.
If you have time before the workshop then have a browse around http://www.shambles.net/web2#blog and http://bloggingvideos.blogspot.com
I understand that some of you will be coming to the session with some specific topics and hope to be able to use Blogs to support those topics.
I will modify the session to help you with some of these ... but more importantly, I will introduce you to Blog search engines so that you can find out if someone already has a Blog on your topic.
Another resource that can help you is the Shambles website ... just go to www.shambles.net and use the site search box.
Your Homework ... one job before you arrive .... introduce yourself (e.g. name, what age students do you work with, do you already use the internet, any technology/computer experiences)
and also say what you hope to achieve at the workshop or special requests.
Just click on the word "Comments" below
and fill in the form that should come up.
You can post anonymously although it would be nice to know who you are.
