  • Hi Michael Im a new teacher and Ive begun using Blogger to get me into the upswing. Im mainly using it to collate links that will be useful for future reference in designing a unit of work. You know it will all be there and I can return and edit re purpose etc. Id love to interact with other teachers at some point having understood the process...Simultaneously Ive found that the topic Trend Search/Watching lends itself to pulling in info from various feeds/apps etc. Its like the whole blog is a search tool now...I love your Cycle! I' m thinking on using it to promote student blogs and it' s also to encourage other Food Tech Teachers to go for it of course.

  • Very nice presentation. I wonder if you also emphasize that although static, except for comments, the blogger links to the resources and Web 2.0 sites that precipitated and continues the personal reflection, a journey of self-created contemporary chautauqua of learning.

    Your presentation reminded me of:
    'Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.'
    Sir Francis Bacon

    Thanks.
