The Scottish Government's Ministers' Blog
It's not quite a blog (I can't subscribe to it) but it's brilliant to see our First Minister and Government opening up a national conversation through their own blog. You can read the Education Minister's latest post and leave your own comments.
I've been doing some work with other departments in the Scottish Government and Westminster, as well as Learning and Teaching Scotland, surrounding social media and its potential for connecting to the people of our country.
This move by the head honcho should help us reassure every public servant, including Local Authority administrations, Head Teachers and teachers, that blogs, podcasts and other social media should be open, freely available and free to comment on. Maybe it always has been, but this move makes it seem even more of a democratic right.
Update: A shame that the Civil Servants can't read their Ministers' blogs.
