My Blogging INSET

I led an INSET training session with staff at my school on Blogging today. My plan was to:

1. Explain what blogging was
2. Try to convey how important it is from the children’s point of view
3. Show some examples relevant to each year group
4. Allow time for staff to look in detail at relevant blogs to their year group
5. Some basic information on how to get started
6. A few tasks to get staff making posts that involve the children posting comments
7. Those who had a little blogging experience to have some free time to develop at their own pace.

As part of the training I showed them this Prezi:

I didn’t show all the link sot the staff, they went off and looked at those relevant to them.

Well, the proof will be in the pudding. Our main blog page is: here

You can view each class blog from the menu on the left. I hope that with time given through staff meetings, little reminders, celebrations and encouragement we will have a very active powerful tool that has been so successful in Year 6 for the last 3 months!

I had to limit the amount of links I showed each year group (two) so I apologise for missing many blogs off, however, I plan to show many more in future training sessions!
