Blog Central is a guidance portal to support teachers' use of Blogging within an educational context.

Blog Central is a guidance portal to support teachers' use of blogging within an educational context. Originally created by Dan Warner from Haringey Local Authority during 2012 comprehensively updated in the autumn of 2014, and now features expert advice from David Mitchell, founder of Quadblogging.

With imaginative examples of blogging in London schools, complete with child-based performances exemplifying good practice, LGfL's one-stop blogging portal is ideal for kick-starting a school's commitment to creating a blogging culture.

The resource is by its very nature dynamic, with multiple blogs feeding into the portal. It features:

  • Video explanations about blogging concepts which show evidence of the impact of blogging on school literacy programmes
  • Technical help guides to support the use of the j2e tools in the LGfL Creative Toolkit for setting up and managing blogging in a London school context
  • Examples of school blogs from London and beyond, using a range of blogging technologies
  • A recommended reading list of related topics
  • Pedagogical support for integrating blogging into school literacy programmes

This resource references the J2e online tools which are not part of the standard TRUSTnet service for schools.

Please contact http://www.just2easy.com/contact-us for prices.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
