Global2 is the Departments blogging tool for schools. It is free and simple to use, giving bloggers the chance to write posts (published in reverse chronological order) and share pictures, images, video, sound and other web links with visitors to their blog. Blogs can be used to provide commentary or news on a particular subject or as a personal online diary. Blogging can be a great way to communicate and collaborate as it provides opportunities for visitors to leave comments.
Students can investigate the characteristics of an effective blog post and develop and assessment tool that they can use to check the quality of their post.
