Looks like Tim has is getting his school set up with MT Web logs. Just seems like this is a natural application for elementary schools where younger kids get a chance to publish and parents get a chance to follow along with what’s up in the classroom. Note too that XML and RSS are featured prominently on most pages, and with this handy little tool, parents could get feeds right into their Outlook In boxes.
There’s no doubt that the potential for increasing communication between parents and schools and teachers is huge with content syndication and Web logs. Some might argue that may not be such a great thing, but I think the more visibility we can create, the more parents will appreciate the process. Too many of the problems arise because there isn’t enough opportunity for parents to stay involoved on some level.
