This site is a weblog. Weblogs have frequent entries called posts. The editor (person who writes the main entries) can either cover a broad range of topics or have a narrow focus on a specific topic. A weblog usually takes the form of a long, cascading page with the newest information added to the top of the page. A calendar is often included at the top of the site so you can refer back to previous posts. It is kind of like reading backwards through a book. SchoolBlogs are weblogs for education. A lot of educators around the world are creating sites to provide new ways of teaching and learning in our classrooms. The best way to learn how to use this site is to explore. Content is created in the form of news stories, discussion, or story links.

We will be exploring the possibilities of using weblogs as a vehicle to provide a web site that is interactive, can be frequently updated, and is collaborative for elementary students. We want to see what works, what doesn't, and how we can use weblogs effectively to prepare our students for the future as thinkers.
