Mark Pullen of The Elementary Educator has some good thoughts concerning the idea of School 2.0. In principle I think it’s a great idea; I’m curious, however, about how to overcome some usage and legal hurdles for my classroom.
– Parent release forms?
– Content issues and the need to moderate comments–will that be an issue?
– Students without ready Internet access
– Worthwhile content. I think that might be the biggest problem. Blogging is relatively new to me, and I haven’t seen many examples of teachers using blogs for more than simple “answer this question” type activities.
