The Blogging School

ImageChef.com - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more As I am writing this post, I am listening to a podcast of a session Tim Tyson conducted on blogging. In the podcast, he explains how and why he started blogs in his school as well as how teachers used them. For those who have had some involvement with posting to blogs, I think you are going to find this podcast well worth your time. You can listen by going here. Some of the content can be used to reinforce our existing ideas and other content will allow us to expand some of those ideas.

Speaking of expanding ideas, imagine sometime in the future, a parent checks his/her e-mail. If something new has been posted to the school's blog, the school system's blog, or the blog of any one of the student's teachers, that post rolls right off into the parent's e-mail. Wouldn't communication be easier?

The good news is that "sometime in the future" is right this minute. It's called RSS (Really Simple Syndication), it's free, and it's the magic that makes keeping up your favorite blogs very simple.

I had talked about the concept, and the free software I use with Outlook, here. You can watch a video of it by going here.
