(W3) Blogs and Blogging

Blogs for teaching and learning 
Tuesday 9th June 09 ... 9:00 to 12:15 

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

If you are attending this session then please click on "comments" below and introduce yourself ... please include information which you think will help me to customise the session to be more suitable to your individual needs. e.g. what ICT skills and experiences do you already have, are you already using it in class, what expectations do you have for this session.

Hi, this is Yin Ping. Teaching Geography and Social Studies at Northbrooks. I dont have a blog but I've been around reading students' blogs. I would like to find out two things from the workshop: 1) how I can use blogs to teach, and also 2) how different are blogs from the usual websites? Am looking forward to the workshop. :)

Hi, Bee Moey here. I teach Economics at Victoria JC. While I am keen to learn how to fit blogs into teaching my subject, I am also concerned whether it might take up a lot of my time to be 'on tap' for students? As it is now, I am already swamped with students' queries via email. Will blogging help to reduce that or add on to it? Looking forward to becoming more IT savvy as I am currently still an immigrant who feels more comfortable reading from printed pages

Hi, Caroline here. I teach Geography, Social Studies and English. I would like to find out how blogs can be harnessed to teach and engage students? How different is it from a web page if videos, podcasts, slides etc. could be attached to a blog? Looking forward to an enlightening and fun time!
