We are all gathered together blogging the day. We have a little revolution going on in school. In partnership with Google we have been spearheading the development of Google Apps for Education in conjunction with the Independent Schools Association (isanet.ning). This has been really exciting. The children are enthused; they are taking ownership of the work. They blog, they mail, they work collaboratively with each other and with me. They send me little projects they have been working on, not always stuff they have been asked to do. Sometimes they just say “Hello”. Some are even combining the technologies of Google Docs and Skype, having online conversations with each other, in real time.
This IS the future – go for it!
Have a look at our school’s weblog, based on the Google Sites format.
