Your Blog

Blogs are a great way to communicate online, see, you are on one right now. They also give you an opportunity to share your ideas with more than just me. Its exciting to know that people are reading what you write; that people care about your ideas. I want you to use blogs for my course work. I will often ask you to complete projects and most of the time I am really open to the type of project you turn in, so if you want to complete a project using a blog, go for it. Its easy to create one, click on one of the links at the bottom of the page, think of a creative title (like Mr Plough's Travel and Tourism Blog j/k), pick out a design you like, and get going.

Keep in mind, blog entries are an extension of this school and need to be used appropriately. Please don't create a blog for my course and use it to share disruptive materials to others. If you have a blog already, please create a separate one for your online coursework.

Check out the video for more info.

You may have to register a Google email if you don't already have one, that is easy too, and we will use many Google functions so its a good idea to have the email anyway. Note: you can't use your School Google Email ID to sign up. Hope to see your voice soon.
