[TIPS] background view of blogging using blogmeister

Are you interested in getting your students blogging but are unsure of how it works? http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=feae8ff06d57432016ce
 
This video is from Mark Ahlness, a third grade teacher who put a powerpoint together for his parent night some time ago. He's now replaying the powerpoint and talking over it to tell us what he told the parents that night. In part of it he shows the backstage operations of a blogmeister blog - what he sees and what the student sees.
 
If your school won't allow students to blog without teacher moderation then you should watch this. It's a great insight into the workings of that blog service. It's also a great insight into the workings of a great teacher.
