School Blog: Numerous schools host their entire school
website on XtecBlocs. Latest school news is published as
posts on the frontpage with important school information
in the sidebars and pages.
Class Blog: The tutor provides links to resources,
assignments and information to help students with their
classes. You can find information about different subjects.
Some teachers use their class blogs to post daily tasks,
information on what was covered in class and when
assignments are due.
English Blog: The English Teacher shares the information
with his/her students in class. Only English Activities.
Class Blog with student blogs: Lots of teachers use class blogs for
global collaboration, authentic learning, reflective
blogging, collaboration and discussion. They also have their own
individual student blogs. Teacher’s find that when students are
asked to write for an audience outside of their class, they are
more motivated, learn more and they write better than if they
only wrote for their teacher.
Professional Blogs: to share information and tips with other
educators, to reflect on their learning or their teaching /work
practices or to improve our blogging skills or learning how to use
blogs with their students.
Group Collaboration and projects: Group collaboration and project
blogs can be as simple as students, or teachers, collaborating on a
group blog, and might involved collaborators from the same school or
different schools, to large global projects.
