Blogging notice

There are concerns about using public and commercial blogs in education due to the fact that anyone in the world can create a blogg without it being moderated.

When creating a blogg for students I would suggest the use of a system that can be moderated easily by the teacher.

Although it has a different structure one possible solution is Making The News

'Making the News (MTN) - the free online publishing system for schools hosted by the National Education Network that enables teachers and pupils to share and promote their learning experiences over the World Wide Web'

Travel from your own PC

This is so clever...you can choose to look at other people's blogs based on where they live in the world. Somehow when you know where some one is based their blog seems twice as interesting...try it.
