(W2) Blogs and Blogging

(W2) Making use of Blogs for teaching and learning
Monday 2nd June 08 ... 2pm to 5.30pm
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

Your Homework ... one job before you arrive .... introduce yourself (e.g. name, where you are working now, 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.
If you already have your own Blog then it would be BRILLIANT if you can put the address (url) in your comment.
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.

Tech Integration Specialist working with grades 3-5 at Singapore American School. Looking for ways to better incorporate Blogging with my students. One problem I've run into is getting around the need for individual email accounts for blog account registration.

Looking forward to the workshop!

I would like to know how blogging can be optimised for language learning and teaching especially if the students are just beginners in the target language.

I am a secondary educator working with students and parents. Students are 14-18 years old. I am wondering what real advantages blogging can offer aside from "vanity publishing" (I merely say that since I see so many blogs where no one has made a comment over a long period of time)..I can appreciate the interactive nature vs. static features of a website.
I want some comments about a new book I just bought onhow to start blogs,etc. (Author is Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett, Title is ProBlogger (Secrets for Blogging your way to a 6-figure income)

Hi

I`m Elaine and I work at the German European School Singapore as Teacher Librarian. Currently I am creating wikis for our PYP units of inquiry but I feel as if I am just scratching the surface. Hope to optimise my web 2.0 skills more and get some ideas for the classroom.
