Hi all,

Blogging used to be a process where individual create a space on the internet to "pour out thier thoughts" into it like a digital-diary or bsically to share thier experiences in life itself to keep thier friends updated.

Many of my students (in fact, my colleagues and myself) have their own blog for that purpose while some used it as a common site for their CCA group, religious group, etc to share thier experiences or make announcement!

My own class have thier class blog which they will never allow me to access (wonder what they had gossiped about me and other of their subject tutors!). It is basically a space for them to vent thier anger, complained or share thier thoughts.

Regardless, I've been harbouring this idea of using it as a teaching+learning tool since some time ago on top of what is already available (e.g. Aculearn, Class Server, etc etc), so I do hope I can be exposed to more ideas on how to use blogging to greater extent!

Thanks Chris for sharing all the cool Web 2.0 technology with us during the workshop. I'm so thrilled to learn and explore the possibilities that I can use in my teaching next term.

I like the way u model the teaching...how u get "students" to control the keyboard and mouse so that the teacher is free to interact with the students (Why didn't I think of that before!!!!)

Great workshop!!! Would definitely go back and share the things I've learnt and looking forward to this afternoon the tomorrow's workshop.

I'm sold!!! ...with your wonderful ideas!!!

Hi all

I am Hannah from First Toa Payoh Secondary School, teaching Lower Sec Maths and Science. I plan Values Education Lessons for my school too.

I would like to learn how we can use blogs to support interaction with our students and use it as a channel of communication with our students during values education.

Hi everyone,

I am Yanting from First Toa Payoh Secondary School. I teach Biology and Chemistry to a group of students whose age range from 13-18. I would like to learn how to use blogging into the teaching and learning of Science and also incorporate it into the teaching of cyberwellness for the Values Education Programme. Also, I am sure if I am able to learn more about blogging, I can set up a blog for my form class to increase interaction and bonding amongst them as well as the teacher.

Have been in and out of the blogging scene and thus my knowledge in blogging is very limited.

Would want to learn how to use blogging as a tool for students to express ideas and information for the national Education department as well as for their subjects.
