Postgraduate student (MA in New Literacies) at the University of Sheffield.Independent educational researcher working with arange of organisations.
  3. 3. Online public writing environments displayed in reversechronological order (Blood, 2002) Blogs are strong examples of ‘literacy as a social practice’ (Davies and Merchant, 2009) Blogs need to be understood as part of a whole wider network of texts (Lankshear and Knobel, 2006)
  4. 4. The primary appeal of blogging for teachersand pupils alike may be that it enables writingto occur for authentic purposes for ‘real’audiences. Readers of blogs can comment onindividual posts and this promotes interactivityand writing as a collaborative process.(Marsh, 2008: 174)
  5. 5. Blogs, as multimodal texts, allow us torepresent these activities in text form, in stilland moving image, or in audio format - and,of course, some of the most interesting blogsare judicious combination of these modes(Davies and Merchant, 2009: 31)

  7. 7. 1. Always appropriate language and grammar in posts andcomments.2. Never write children’s first and last names together. Childrenmay only mention first names in blog posts and comments.3. Children should not upload pictures of themselves, their friendsor their family which would make them identifiable.4. Everybody should be respectful of people’s achievements andefforts when leaving comments.5. If children are unhappy with anything that is written on theblog they must tell a member of the school staff immediately.
