Edublogging - an ancient phenomenon
Blogging in classrooms is not a new idea, as I often point out, but via Will comes the revelation that it has been going on for five whole years in Barbara Ganley's High School. Barbara's own site refers to his milestone, but by clicking through a few of her posts you realise that she has some great projects on the go.
One that is of great interest to modern linguists is the Blogging Around the World project, even though it did put a horrible image of Francis Rossi and Nick Parfitt into my mind. (CORRECTION: Rick Parfitt. As I said to Pete, I think it shows a rather discerning taste in music to make a mistake in Parfitt's name.)
That said, it makes for interesting reading and an interesting concept as independent travellers from three High Schools use each other's blogs, and the supportive comments from friends and teachers back home, to keep sane and think through what travel brings to them.
I'm just finding out all about constructivism, and I reckon this fits nicely into that theory. There! A constructivist blog post.
