Blogs in Schools

Psychology and ICT

Blogs are being used more in primary schools, and are having an impact on teaching strategies (Krishnan, 2012). They give children the opportunity to write and get feedback from an audience. Introducing blogs into schools comes with limitations: technophobia, computer addiction, online identities, e-safety and more (Dullah, 2009).

Setting up a school blog involves getting everybody involved. Some teachers and pupils may be scared of the idea so obstacles have to be addressed to cater to everybody’s needs.

To initiate a blog one would need to set up an easy interface which everyone will be able to use, and understand.

Book Highlight

Told in diary form by an irresistible heroine, this playful and perceptive novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the May Bird trilogy sparkles with science, myth, magic, and the strange beauty of the everyday marvels we sometimes forget to notice.

Spirited, restless Gracie Lockwood has lived in Cliffden, Maine, her whole life. She’s a typical girl in an atypical world: one where sasquatches helped to win the Civil War, where dragons glide over Route 1 on their way south for the winter (sometimes burning down a T.J. Maxx or an Applebee’s along the way), where giants hide in caves near LA and mermaids hunt along the beaches, and where Dark Clouds come for people when they die.

To Gracie it’s all pretty ho-hum…until a Cloud comes looking for her little brother Sam, turning her small-town life upside down. Determined to protect Sam against all odds, her parents pack the family into a used Winnebago and set out on an epic search for a safe place that most people say doesn’t exist: The Extraordinary World. It’s rumored to lie at the ends of the earth, and no one has ever made it there and lived to tell the tale. To reach it, the Lockwoods will have to learn to believe in each other—and to trust that the world holds more possibilities than they’ve ever imagined.
