Second classroom lesson with the 16-19s today on using their blogs - I wanted them to get more familiar with the edublog layout and try and create a new page and also upload a photo of themselves.
Quite a few of the students found it hard to get their heads around the difference between authoring the Blog and how the Blog appears on the web. Then there was great confusion as to whether they could work on it from home - they didn't quite grasp the fact that it was not connected to the Intranet here which most are now familiar with.
This was quite an interesting consideration in terms of teaching and learning especially with ESOL students...if I develop a wiki for example - will they get what it is all about? Do they need to?
