Our other Blogs and Wikis
Have you started a blog for school or know of someone else in the Diocese who has? It would be good to have a look at what others are doing and might give some the push they need to go public.
The K-12 Teacher Librarian group has just started a wiki aimed at developing resources and a discussion space for readers advising - the art (or maybe science) of assisting others in discovering their own reading preferences. We have just started at Read On.
At Patrician Brothers' Library we have had a blog going since 2004 just for putting up quick links for current assignments. It has had the odd name change but is now called Latest Links. It certainly makes life easier when teachers want to direct their classes to specific sites, and is often handy for repeat assignments in the following year. A bit of updating and off they go.
This year we started a book review blog called Book Bites. Most of the reviews here are mine, but we have had a few boys who have contributed and we would love more. It is also a good place to link to other book sites of interest to our students, especially ones which showcase young people's responses.
So come on, who else has a blog or wiki to show us?
