My superintendent wanted an update on where we were with the instructional side of Weblogs and the numbers in the title are what I sent him. More are probably on the way as it’s still early. I also gave a brief description of how the teachers and students were using them. “Blogging” was not in there anywhere.
Later, I got back this e-mail:
You may want to develop some conservative projections on the increase in the use of web logs by our staff over the next three years. Knowing the BOE, I anticipate the BOE will ask this question as well as what measurable increase in student achievement we can expect from the increase in the use of web logs.
Aye, there’s the task. (Sorry…I forgot “Talk Like a Pirate Day” was yesterday.) M-E-A-S-U-R-A-B-L-E increase in student achievement. Well, let’s see. Not to be blunt, but from where I sit, no blogging, no increase.
Time to hone the message, I think.
