We’ve been looking recently at the idea of student blogs – encouraging students to keep some kind of an online diary – and whether Chalkface could play a role in promoting these. Most of the writing I come across in this area is still in the “blogs will change the world” genre. That doesn’t interest me terribly because I think it ignores the wider structural context of school life. This commentary from Will Richardson, however, struck me as very down-to-earth. If you are thinking of getting your students blogging, I recommend you read it.
