BlogPerhaps you have seen other teachers doing it. Maybe you just do it for yourself. You've heard people talking about it but not sure how to get started, or how to take the next step.

Blogs offer a highly flexible technology that can be used across the curriculum to provide a window on the classroom, connect learning to family, create authentic audiences for writing, offer a space for reflection...and a myriad of other purposes related to pedagogy and learning areas.

This thread aims to provide stories, examples, tips and advice on how to harness the power of blogging and integrate it with effective learning.

Guest teachers and champion bloggers - Allanah King ('Life is not a race to be first finished blog), Kimberley Rivett (eLearning for Life blog), and Stephanie Thompson (Teaching the Teacher blog) - will be on hand to answer your questions and share their expertise.

Meanwhile, here's a wee video from Enabling e-Learning: Teaching to whet your appetite. Nic Mason, teacher at Russell Street School, says, "teaching the kids something and letting them experiment in their own way" has enabled his students technological capability to develop. He and his students describe the process, some of the tools, and the learning they gain and reflect on, through creating blog posts:

    Hi Tamara, 

    If you get the embed code from the video and go to the blog, switch the editor to html code then you can paste the code in. Worked for me.

    Hi Tamara and Monika                                                                                                                                              

    At the bottom of the edtalks video, it says Embed / Download from Vimeo. Click on that and it takes you to the video on Vimeo. On the top right there are three symbols. the bottom one is Share. This gives you access to the embed code which you can then add to your blog post when in html editor. Danielle on edtalks Hope this helps.

    I was wondering why you couldn't see it. It was so clear on my laptop. Never occurred to me you were on a tablet. #usingmylaptop smiley
