Tool #1 - New to blogging

I have had a little bit of practice with blogging before, so setting up this blog wasn't too painful. I had a lot of fun decorating and playing with my Voki avatar. I might still change her some more, but after an hour of playing I just HAD to move on to the next step. One drawback I noticed in setting up these accounts is that there are a lot of accounts, usernames, and passwords to keep track of in this process.

I could see myself using a blog like this to keep in touch with my students' parents about upcoming concerts and music events at the school. I could also post pictures of concerts and events that are finished. In the classroom, I could have students create videos to post on the blog. Videos could be anything from Animoto slide-shows of our concerts to creating their own opera.

Students could read the blog and post comments at any time about pictures or events that they see posted.
