Hi Malcolm! Thanks for your comments! I do think many of my students write more than they would if we weren't blogging, although to be fair, some students don't write any more than they would if they were writing on pads of paper. One of the benefits of the blogs has been that they're being used by teachers across the school, not because it was mandated but because they were seeing students excited to post their work for other subjects. This has given students' the benefit of seeing their writing evolve as seeing the way they write in different disciplines.
Best,
Meredith

I found this really inspiring. Does she think that the blogging has led to real improvements in children's attainment? How would this compare to where they may have been without the ability to use the technology?
