Using blogs in the classroom

Here are a few original ways to show how blogs are used in the classroom.

St Vincent's Y5 & 6 blog - This blog has regular updates for the children in years 5 and 6 at this school. It's updated weekly and it features updates about what the pupils have done in school that week. It also features links to games and other websites connected with their studies.

Oak1 at Shirley Warren Primary School - This is a writing blog. The teacher uploads the children's writing and photos to the blog to display their work. Pupils and parents can then read their work from their English lessons.

Mr Jennings' Class - This blog is updated every couple of days and acts as a sort of diary of what the children have studied in the last couple of days. Great for communicating with parents!

Does anyone else use blogs in the classroom? Does anyone use them in any other effective ways?
