Flor de Ceibo, a group of volunteer professors and students, visited Santa Lucía, Uruguay ... to show primary school teachers how to blog. "It is one of the easiest ways to enter this other world made possible by the internet, a way to not just receive information, which is very interesting but also to contribute and be producers of information. A blog is just a tool to do this task simply. It is something that everyone can do including teachers and students. There are various tools that can help us to do this ... that is, to put blogging within the routines that you already have. With the tool that we are suggesting, one of the things it allows is ... if you are creating a blog with your students what they write, before being published, you will have to approve it. That way, if you see that there are spelling mistakes or if they wrote something inappropriate ... you can go and speak with that student and explain why it needs to be improved until it appears ready to you, as teachers, for publishing. Let's try this small activity, in order to familiarize ourselves, of creating a blog with this tool ... we have called EduBlog ... which was developed largely by by people here in Uruguay ... it was programed by Uruguayans ... and this gives us the advantage in that, when we see certain features that need to be improved or changed, which come about from your suggestions ... we can get to work so that the tool is adopted to our real necessities. Then the registration form asks if anyone can see the blog and this is interesting if you want to create an internal blog for example if the teachers want to make a blog in order to share among yourselves but so that the students and others can't see it except when you authorize it. "Everyday we learn something new" We are here in Santa Lucía and the majority of us don't know anything about Santa Lucía and even less about this school. The proposal is that we write something about the school. It could be about the history of the school, how it functions, the interests that you each have how you wish that it were or how you wish it had been in the past who is part of the district, who are some of the local personalities, whatever you think ...
