Things are looking up this week for the use of blogs at school. Geography @ Priory is doing well over at WordPress. The wordpress system allows me to track the number of visitors per post. This is allowing me to justify its use. If the trial continues to gather pace I plan to conduct a pupil voice survey and then promote to parents using moo cards.
In addition the Web 2.0 report this week has also supported the case. Don’t get me wrong, the report can be used t support the case for VLE’s too, and I’m not against them at all. What is frustrating is the lack of vision and fore planning in some aspects of education about the educational use of such platforms.
