Global Teacher - WEB 3.0 Community and Research Project

Who Sees Our Work?

Staff participating in the Global Teacher weblogging network will be encouraged to post samples of student project work at the Global Teacher Blogs. We want to see samples of student work, and we know that many people in your community will be excited to see student work published here. School based Edublogs will have lists of participating students and, as a consequence, Principal, staff, parents and extended family members will be able to view a student’s global weblog directly on the World Wide Web. Publishing on the World Wide Web brings special responsibilities. Remember that once you click the publish button, your work is in a very public domain and can be readily scrutinized by anyone who has access to the Internet. So never use students full names and never include email addresses in your posts. Google and other search engines can trace anyone once their full name appears on the Web (just do a vanity check and you will see this is true) and trackers can copy email addresses very easily. No one wants the sort of unsolicited email that can begin to arrive.

The Internet is a wonderful publishing tool with enormous potential but there is a down side. You do need to practice safe cyber publishing.

    Our class weblog has been coming along well and have had some feedback form within our school. What I’d like to know is how to look and see what other teachers and students are doing. How do I do this?

    Hello Trishd
    Do you have a favourite blog that you like to follow? If so do you have an RSS feed or a google reader account? I personally use reader.google and have registered and then entered the url for the blogs that I like following, so each time I go to google reader, I know when a new entry goes up. If you would like to know some that I find interesting, let me know and also let me know what year levels you teach.

    Hi Anne, I have neither of these and am fairly new to getting into taking the blog into where it can possibly go - I know there is no limit.

    I have been spending a lot of time reading and trying to get a handle on widgets, plugins, using video in my class blog and so many, many more things. I have joined the wild garden web 2.0 adventure and am enjoying the journey so far.

    I’ve watched some videos on how to add/embed video into my blog and have found both viddler and revver but am not sure how to add these plugins as I do not have a plug in tab…
    I know I have a long way to go and any help or pointers in the right direction would be invaluable.
    Look forward to learning so much more.
    Trish
