So many teachers are using blogs to connect to others about their learning. Others are using blogs as a professional learning tool. The global2 platform is useful because it is easy to use, but there are obviously many others out there. We need to reflect regularly as teachers and to ensure that we use new tools in our teaching. It is this that allows us to consider what we really want from our students. I use social web tools to keep up with what other teachers are doing. This post here explains it for me.
Check out particularly, Berwick Fields’ great site for their 5/6s. The site is very appealing visually and has lots of great embedded content. It is a really great way of recording what they are doing across the two years. I love the fact that their homework is up there and a revision of their class work. Very well thought out site.
