While I have used a blog already in my classroom and I follow some from home, I am creating this one as a professional development assignment. While I am fairly comfortable working with most types of technology, this one has been difficult and a bit ponderous. The Voki seems to serve no real purpose and while I think blogging with and for the kids could be very useful, just to get to this point has used so much time I could have been prepping for class, grading, etc.
I would have preferred "here's a blog assigned to you--post something twice a week that will benefit your kids." I guess that is my challenge though.
