I started using Edublogs in 2009 because I wanted to see if it could be used as an on-line literature circle with a small group of kids who were reading Call of the Wild. I had limited success with that – partly because I was just learning about blogging, but also because the school year ended before I could really figure it out.
This time around I want to use it to resurrect the ideas that I had planned to call “Homeschool Away from Home” at Upper Chetco Charter School in 2005. At that time the technology for on-line education was in its infancy, but now I feel like the time is right to move forward.
I’m not sure of what it will eventually be, but for now I’m going to use it as an on-line filing cabinet for the stuff I’ve already developed for L2W/W2L. Since so many of my hard copy files were stolen with my car on May 8, 2016, it’s going to feel good to get the ones I have left organized in a place that hopefully is safe!
