Are you a teacher or student in Spring Branch with an interest in blogging? Now you can learn how to blog, and do so for free at the District's new community blogging site located at http://blog.mysbisd.com.
From the blogging website:
Welcome to My SBISD!
January 2008: My SBISD is an online community blogging site for Spring Branch ISD teachers and employees. At this time, there are several classrooms throughout the district who are piloting programs where teachers and students create and maintain blogs for educational and instructional purposes. If you are not a part of this pilot program, hopefully in the near future, as the “kinks get worked out”, more and more teachers will be afforded this opportunity.
For all other teachers and employees of Spring Branch ISD, there is a limited amount of blog space being made available on this site. With this part of the blogging initiative, teachers and employees can participate by creating their own professional blog.
If you are interested in creating a professional blog for your classroom or department, please click the link below, to create your own blog. You must be a district employee and you must use your Spring Branch ISD employee email address when you set your blog up.
Before creating your site, please download and read the Teachers Blogging Acceptable Use Guidelines.
If you are one of the teachers piloting the program where you are
blogging with your students as part of your curriculum, please download
the Student Blogging Acceptable Use Guidelines .
All students and their parents MUST read and sign this document before
they should be allowed to create their blog for your class.
In the near future, look for online tutorials that will show how to use the blogging feature.
