All Victorian educationalists are welcome to join Global Teacher. It is very easy to join.
Principals will be required to give staff permission to engage whole class groups. This is an imperative because responsibility for student blogs and posts must remain with local school administration.
If you plan to use Global Student Learner Blogs in your classroom, you have to understand that it is essential to actively manage them, to ensure they are not misused. For blogs to work effectively it is essential that you apply all your usual â€˜good classroom management practices. There HAS to be a main administrator, but this safe blogging environment does enable an organization or team to have more than one administrator, each of whom can take on different roles. This can alleviate any concerns about excessive workload in a school setting.
Please keep records of all principal’s permissions given, and make sure to CC your principal or supervisor when emailing to request membership.
To register, all you will need to do is contact Heather Blakey at [email protected] to receive an invitation.
Once you have your space check out some of the ideas other teachers are using the weblogs or join one of the existing projects to get the hang of it…. Don’t forget Heather is online to help you at [email protected]
