Cole Academy Staff Learns to Blog

I asked the participants these three familiar questions. Here are their answers.

What is a blog?

It’s a weblog. Web + log = weblog. we blog.
Messages posted on the internet.
It could be your opinion… a diary kind of.

What is the read/write web?

It’s the difference between reading information and producing web content.
Others are shaking their heads.
We’ve got nervous laughter…

How do you think you might use these technologies with your students?

The principal: I’d like to see interactive applications on their sites for students to explore and learn.
Cut down on paper.
Offers no excuses for missed homework.
Create skills they can use for the rest of their life.

So, we’ve got our work cut out for us, but this group is firing on all cylinders.
