Welcome to blogging for the Cross-School Seminar. This blog is a place for all of us to post some thoughts and reactions while we learn about one of the most important new sources of information available online. While blogs are most often public journals with a single author, ours will demonstrate how a blog might be used with a group of learners to share information.

For a great site on blogging for the classroom visit Educational Blogging 101 - a wiki (we'll get to that, too) about blogging in school. Lots of very good links there. Note especially The Daily D on the link to Class blogs.

To keep this one organized for the entire class, I'll be posting a prompt before each session to which you will reply or "comment." It will be interesting to see how each of our voices comes out here even though we will be able to talk to one another in our sessions.
