My husband just tossed this article to me and a couple things jump out. First, it would have been helpful if the Trib had posted links to the teacher and admin blogs listed. Even their online version does not contain that info. Secondly, there are no quotes from students on what they think. Thirdly, there is no mention of any local or nationally known edublogers that I am aware of. And finally, there is absolutely NO mention of any schools trying to block blogs. I know this is happening in Illinois because several teachers joined the Illinois Technology Conference for Educators blog (which I established)last year using their home computers because they could not join while at school as their districts banned Blogger, the service behind the ILTCE blog. It seems to me that this piece could have used some more authority, and it is a shame that it gives such a cursory view of blogs in classrooms. There is so much more to this phenomenon. I'm wondering if it was a slow news day.
