This year I thought I would try a blog with my Year 10's. I am so pleased and that the students are keen, so we have the blog up and running. We spent a lesson on how to set one up, privacy and getting that first post up. The students have been really responsible and I think are enjoying getting the thoughts out there. I designed it so that they have their own blog with a link on a class blog, that way at the end of the year they can till keep control.
Please take a look through and comment on their work so far as it would be encouraging
