Looking for ideas - how are teachers using class blogs to connect with and engage parents in classroom learning. Would appreciate you adding your ideas to a shared presentation, via this link, https://goo.gl/w91wlH, if you have time. Thanks.

    I am using Google Sites which is a website format rather than a blog but the children are able to post documents from Googledocs, videos, photos etc that show their current learning goals and how they are working with them. They have separate pages for different curriculum areas. This has meant that conversations about what we are doing in class are happening at home and parents are more informed. We have only been working with it this year and some children are really good at posting others not so. The amount of interest from families has a direct link to how keen the children are to post but I guess that is the same with everything.
