    Setting Up a Student-Centered Classroom Blog
  • Blogging in a nutshell
    • Example of Web 2.0
    • Definition from wikipedia :
    • A blog is a website where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order .
    • Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more
    • personal online diaries . A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to
    • its topic. Most blogs are primarily textual although some focus on photographs ( photoblog ), videos ( vlog ), or audio ( podcasting ).
    • User-friendly
    • Share a common format. Lots of free blog providers.
    • Control of blog is with the person who has set it up
    • Blogs tend to have a few things in common:
    • A main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest at the top
    • An archive of older articles
    • A way for people to leave comments about the articles
    • A list of links to other related sites, sometimes called a “blogroll”
    • One or more “feeds” like RSS …
  • Checking out blogs: http://blogger.myfishingexpert.com/ http://www.observationdeck.org/weblogs/?p=1973 http://www.fashblog.com/ http://afamilyinbaghdad.blogspot.com/ http://smithpartyof6.blogspot.com/
    • Digging Deeper:
    • Searching for Blogs
    • RSS Feeds
    • Classroom Blogs – A Rundown
    • Why have one?
    • Safety
    • Examples of blogs in education
  • Possible reasons for having a classroom blog
    • Creates a learning community feel in a place away from the traditional classroom. This learning community is open 24/7
    • Blogs give individual learners a voice – shifting the ‘power’ from the instructor to the learner
    • Provides an authentic audience for student writing, an audience of peers, parents, and a potential worldwide audience.
    • Allows for multiple feedback loops among the networked students, teachers and other interested parties. Learning in a class blog setting is now a social activity.
    • Supports differentiation. The blog gives some of our more verbally reserved students a forum for their thoughts.
    • Encourages reading. To make a meaningful comment, or to choose their favorite post, the students first need to read what’s out there.
    • Encourages and teaches research skills. Encourages students to extend their research beyond the assigned work.
    • Builds technology skills
    • Provides links to others sites and resources
    Reflective or Writing Journals E- Portfolios Dialogue for Group Work Content Related Blog – School Wide Theme/ Course Blogs need to be thoughtfully integrated into the curriculum. Simple geeting learners to blog is not enough- blogs in learning must be activity –centric.

    • Planning your (classroom ) blog
    • Food for Thought
    • What would be the purpose of your blog?
    • What are you going to write about?
    • How often?
    • Who would read it ? Why would people read it?
    • Who would comment on it? Who would post on it ? Why?
  • Student Safety and Privacy Concerns
    • The following guidelines are by no means exhaustive, but may be helpful to address some real and legitimate concerns
    • Depending on the age of students, consider posting their work using a pseudonym instead of the students’ real names. In no cases use a student’s first name and last name on a blog posting.
    • Set up your blog so all comments must be moderated by you. Comments will be emailed to you for the ‘ok’ before being directly posted to your blog.
    • Set up your blog with a password to limit public access. The password can be provided to class members, parents, and others with an interest in the work of your class, but others in the public are prohibited from simply browsing the contents of your classroom weblog.
    • Keep the school community posted.
    • Inform all stakeholders about your planned or ongoing use of blogs for instructional purposes. Solicit their support and feedback in advance, ideally before concerns or problems develop relating to blog postings.
    • Protect your blogid and password just like you would a credit card number.
