The Internet is not what it used to be. Web 2.0 – or the Read/Write Web has changed everything – and your students love it! The social aspects of Web 2.0 with sitesI Love Blogging! like Facebook, MySpace and Bebo are so engaging to students that they are attracted to them like magnets. But they are so foreign to schools, teachers and education authorities, that we choose to BLOCK them at school.

This podcast focusses on the benefits of using such sites and as an introduction to the subject, also provides an insight into the ramifications that our students are often oblivious to. In under three minutes, you’ll understand why teachers and schools should be blogging. Just click the Play button below.

hi stu,

i’ve listened to your podcast and i’m really interested in setting up a class blog for my year 8 students. i’m a bit lost, however, as to how to actually set it up. should i set a blog for the whole class or should i set up a blog for individual students in the class? of course, i will be moderating their comments and their posts.

could you please give me more information on how to set up a class blog? or could you please direct me to other sources of information?

thank you.
chris
