[...] Through some conversations with Karl Fisch I learned how they developed the policy. Karl intitially developed the blogging policy (researching heavily from sources around the web). He is the Director of Technology and did the initial legwork. Then he asked his teachers who were going through staff development to add their suggestions at this pbwiki. Then they posted it and shared it with the students in their classes who were blogging and asked for their feedback. Karl told me that they only made minor changes based on that feedback. However, they envision this as a “living” document – anticipating that they will need to make changes as they learn more and as the technology changes. Karl was attempting to setup some guidelines that would help, without getting too rigid or leaving themselves open to problems if they didn’t have something out there. Karl also wanted to stay away from anything too formal (like school board policy or anything) because he feared that could lead to a shutdown of blogging altogether should they have a problem. I had a previous post, Teachable Moments and Building Models about a problem that they had which they handled so well through conversations with staff and students These conversations took place on blogs and on a personal level. Then the other aspect of this blogging policy is the inclusion of students in the process. That is top-notch! Thanks Karl for sharing and pass on the thanks to your students and teachers. [...]

I am even more impressed - I agree that she will be even more successful. I think the work you are doing with the teachers is absolutely wonderful. It is a model that needs to be shared. You may have and I look forward to browsing about all the engaging sites. I constantly try to come up with more effective ways of teaching about blogging. It can be overwhelming to those new to it. Your staff development is truly well developed and many others will learn from it. Also, thanks for alerting me about the typo on the url. It is corrected! I also know the feeling of being behind on bloglines - I have a long list of "must get to this" items! Thanks for taking the time to post a comment back. Best to you and your cohorts - I shall do my best to enter the conversations.

Kristin is an amazing teacher and has had some wonderful conversations with students on her blog (and in class, of course). What's even more amazing is that we really just started looking at blogging in October and she took the risk to launch it with her classes "on the fly." I think she will be even more successful with blogging with her students after having some time this summer to reflect on the experience this year and then start at the beginning of the year with a new group of students. FYI - your link to the "profanity" post has a typo in it - it should be . Kristin is indeed part of a staff development class of teachers at our high school exploring constructivism and the use of technological tools to foster a more student-centered approach to learning. We have 18 teachers in our first cohort that are finishing up our first year of staff development. Those 18 teachers will continue next year with a second year of staff development, and then we are adding a second cohort of 32 additional teachers who begin in August. The Fischbowl is the blog where we can continue the conversation in between our sessions once very two to three weeks, as well as where I try to post other relevant issues to push their thinking. Blogging is obviously one of the technological tools that we introduced - both for use with their classes and as a place for them to reflect on what we talk about in our staff development and on their teaching. On the side of The Fischbowl you'll see links to their personal blogs (not much posting here at the end of the year) and to some of the class blogs they have created for use with their students. I know I would love if you have any comments to contribute to our discussions on The Fischbowl - and I think the teachers would appreciate any comments you'd like to leave on their personal or class blogs. I always learn something when I read your posts (although I must admit I am very far behind on my Bloglines reading at the moment) and appreciate the time, thought and effort you put into them.
