Pupil Blogs

As I started the new job I was keen to encourage the girls to use personal blogs to assist their learning. Each of the KS3 classes I teach had a lesson on using and setting up a personal blog. To ensure anonymity the girls have used their school login id’s in their url and they know that they shouldn’t include any personal details in their posts.

It’s early days but the results are quite interesting. Some girls are regularly using the blog to reflect on their learning and to share what they have been doing in lessons, some are only posting under duress in lessons. Some classes have also set up personal box.net accounts in order to link their work to their posts. I want to be able to assess work online by commenting on posts and linked work and I’ve started to do this but it really is a work in progress and the jury is still out.

You can see some of the latest posts from pupil blogs on the right hand side.
