I've just enrolled in an on-line learning course designed to explore and use the tools available on the Google site. I know that Blogger is one of these tools and that is what attracted me to the class... that and finding out more about the Google Apps I might be able to introduce to staff and students.
I created a small webpage: http://bobsd46.googlepages.com/home with the Pages tool. It is a pretty simple tool to use and I think it might have some promise for using with students in the intermediate grades. I think I have just the group of students in mind to try this with.
