Elizabeth Fullerton left a comment a couple of days ago that brings up once again the many difficulties that teachers are experiencing as they start to try to implement Weblogs into their schools.
I’ve just begun my first attempt with exposing students to blogging and I spent the entire first semester running in circles with our school board technology policies…[the culture of blogging] is evolving faster than many of our system policies are. My school system just isn’t equipped policywise and technologywise to handle my foray into the blogosphere.
No doubt there are many others in her situation. Pat has been saying for a long time that the hurdles most teachers have to jump over to get seriously into Weblogs are still too high. Policies, hardware, time, lack of technical support…we’ve got a long way to go.
