Why Blog?

| 1 Comment

On the 12th of December 2009 I was reflecting on my love of Blogging via our Visual Arts@ Taylors Lakes Primary School blog and I wondered how I could share that enthusiasm. I wanted an avenue to share with my fellow staff members and those teachers¬† and others out there who perhaps feel a bit overwhelmed by current technologies and how best to use them with students. I went straight to Edublogs, began a new blog and then came to a halt. I took a break thinking that the introduction of the Ultranet run by the Department of Early Childhood Education here in Victoria would be the answer to this need. But that hasn’t happened.We haven’t received enough Professional Development and the Ultranet is not as user friendly as it could be. My aim is to provide this blog as a learning resource.
