Thank you for sharing the benefits of blogging as well as how to get started with blogging. I like the idea of using blogging as a writing portfolio to see students grow as writers.

I like the idea of having an authentic audience, especially a global audience. I have used SKYPE before to try and reach out to people around the world, but the technology is hit or miss sometimes. I like the idea that kids can become more globally aware through this medium as it makes it real and exciting. Thanks!

Pernille's webinar was both practical and inspiring. It was a great introduction to the reasons to blog/benefits for students, as well as highlighting free tools for getting started and some wonderful resources and ideas that could be used even if you are not blogging with your students. Pernille's energy and enthusiasm is infectious and she sincerely offered help and support for teachers just getting started.

This webinar is full of excellent insight and information for a teacher new to havign students blog. Mrs. Ripp provides several tools and ideas for how to get students blogging and how to help parents be comfortable with the process and the openness. I found it well worth 30 minute sof my time.

This is a good webinar if your students have access to technology. Unfortunately, a lot of students do not. I love the idea of being able to do stuff like this with my classes, but when access is a limitation, it is near impossible. Thank you for the webinar thoughI look forward to a time when I can utilize some of these ideas.
