Using a blog in a project

In a learning project it's good to pay attention to which parts of the process can be shared with everybody and which parts should be carried out in safe and private environment.
On one hand, pupils' collaboration: forums, chats and wikis must take place in a secure protected environment. On the other hand, it's important to share the process and its outputs with the whole school, parents and the surrounding community.
Blogs are excellent for being used as project diaries. You can write there weekly what's happening in the project, publish pictures, make links to photo galleries and embed video clips, podcasts and presentations. You may also allow commenting, but blogs aren't good tools for discussions.
Remember to link your blog on the school homepage, so that it can be found easily.
