Blogger Arises

As one who enjoys integrating educational technology and as one who likes teaching others about it even more, using a blog seems like a no-brainer. It is a way to reach out to the world and contribute to the world of information. I can't wait to show my students how to use one... administration is still a bit hesitant--sort of like the "over protective parents" who are trying to shield students from the perils of web-workings. They approved a district-based blog, where only students, parents, and teachers can read their postings. Why not teach them safe and appropriate webehavior in first grade? Why not create open blogs for students to participate in, while monitoring content? How long will it be until we can get our kids exploring their world?
