According to David Warlick of The Landmark Project, the Blog is â€œan online publishing tool that enables people to easily publish their loves, passions, dislikes, peeves, discoveries, and insights.â€ Yes, all sorts of students and teachers publish their insightsâ€¦the good, bad and ugly for all to see!
- If you, an educator are creating your own personal blog, donâ€™t mention student names, parent gripes or the â€œhot substitute teacherâ€ or you might find yourself in hot water. Use common sense.
- If students are talking to an educator about someoneâ€™s blog containing threats, take it seriously and go to the administration. You might save a life.
- Try the various blog search engines such as Feedster or DayPop or even Google to discover student blogs.
- Some administrators find student blogs can help them take the pulse of the school!
