Wow! I am amazed at what I see when reading and navigating through this blog. It is clear that RSS have figured out technology integration and have put it into high gear. When I think about my vision for the blog I had last year, I see something similar to this. Although, my blog was nowhere near the excellence of this one.
I love how they organized the blog so that initially (the home page) it caters to the public community showing what the students and staff are involved in both academic and extra curricular activities. There was also a whole section for parents that explained how to use certain devices or the expectation of the students, etc. And finally each class has an individual blog where they posted their work, updates, activities, etc. I love that the class blogs are student centered. It's obvious that the students have strong ownership of them.
One big question that kept popping into my mind was about the student privacy. My district is incredibly strict when it comes to posting pictures or videos of students on blogs. I'm wondering if they had to get parent consent first or perhaps they are more relaxed over there? That was the only part that scared me a bit. BUT other than that, wow!! I'm so impressed with how they are using blogs. Doing something like this could make a school website much more effective, in my opinion.
