ICT in schools

This term I have been volunteering to work with teachers and children in the schools which were badly hit by the earthquakes here. One of the things I have found is that some schools which had not used blogs before are now wanting to use them, why? ...

Children here were off school for up to three weeks (some for more). During this time many families moved away from the city to stay with people from other parts of New Zealand. The children attended other schools. Many of the schools these children attended had blogs and, so when the children returned to their own schools, they wanted to have a classroom blog too!! How great to have the children pushing their teachers to get on board!!
