    I’m not really sure what to do! But I would like students to write Book Reviews for others to read and to inform students and staff of new books in the LRC.

  2. L Maddison says:

    Because i have not a clue what it is or how to use it!

  3. L Batty says:

    I am unsure of how to set it up 🙂

  4. kp says:

    I have no skills in this area. I don’t use facebook or twitter or anything like that. I don’t know anything about it really.

    I have never really used it in my Psychology lessons but once i know how to then i suppose i am willing to give it a shot.I am looking forward to it because i can ask students to write articles related to the topics we do.

  6. Emma says:

    I’ve never used it and I don’t know how to! It is another of those things that I should understand and just don’t

  7. Natasha says:

    1 – I do not understand the concept of blogging.
    2 – After discussion with students they have suggested that blogging could be used to share images of thier work, discuss one anothers ideas for coursework.
    3 – The students I discussed blogging with suggested that images were more interesting than written bloggs.

    I don’t really know how to set one up but if I did I think I would get addicted to it so it’s maybe not a good idea personally! I am very interested to learn of the benefits to students and the ways to use it in the classroom however.

  9. Sarah says:

    I am not really sure how to blog and if it was used by students how would it be monitored? I would be interested in learning more about it though!!

    I like the idea of blogging for things like homework help, revision help answering key questions etc.
    I just wonder whether whether it would be too time consuming to a) follow the discussion and B) respond to all of the queries
    if you decide to use it I would be concerned that many of the students would not access it.

    To my mind it seems that it would be more successful at KS4 and 5 rather than KS3?

  11. Rachel says:

    I haven’t really though about it as a teaching tool before. Open to ideas though!

    I dont know what to do, and don’t really have the time
