Well, I have finally had my advanced students set up their blogs over at journalspace. While right now they could access any blog site, I decided to stick with journalspace since it was the only one they could access before -- and it may be the only one they can access again.
Today we just set the blogs up. They haven't posted to them yet -- that will come in a few days. I told them that I wanted to share their blogs with other people, friends of mine, and they seemed amazed. I also told them that, eventually, I want to share them with the college administration. I want them to take this seriously because if they mess up, it could cause lots of problems for future students. I am really sure, though, that they will be responsible and make me proud!
Now, this may seem like a lot of work and worry and bother for 2 students (Yes, I have only 2 advanced students!), but I am excited.
Once they are up and running, I'll let you know. The students won't be posting there a lot -- and some of it will be formal postings (responses to assignments and such). But I know they would appreciate your comments.
