Many teachers have been asking me how they can start a blog in their classroom. I.T. will soon be rolling out procedures, rules, and the application process for how you can start one with your students.
In order to have students be able to work in a safe Internet environment, blogs will be supervised through the auspices of the Instructional Technology Department. Until applications are open, here are some of your local teachers who have started blogging with their classrooms:
=>Read, Write, and Blog (Olive Branch)
=>Tyler’s Tomes (John Tyler)
Some Portsmouth Public Schools Summer Camps:
=>Read, Write, and Publish
=> Camp Coral Reef Reflections
=>Get It W.R.I.T.E.
=>Tech Cadet Boot Camp (blogging camp for students during the summer)
=>Richard III Literature Blog (this teacher was actually contacted through this blog from an expert in England–way too cool!)
=>Book Review blog
=>Outsiders blog (students create the posts for outsiders to comment)
Portsmouth Instructional Technology Department workshops/seminars
=> Crime Scene Investigations :We also presented at the ISTE (International Society of Technology Education) Conference in Atlanta this past June. This is how we posted information for participants via a blog
This will give you some ideas to get the creative juices flowing. Questions? Contact your building TRT for more information.
