Well, what an adventure. Room 22 learned to blog. We had some challenges and some triumphs. Let's start with the fact that MCDS has a filter for the wi-fi network. You can't blame them or anything because they need to block inappropriate content. So we had to spend about half of our first blog class having the teachers sign into all the students' computers with their passwords to lift the filter from our computers. Our first two posts came from our teacher because when we were added as authors, some people couldn't figure out how to get in, which made it, well you can imagine, a teacher's nightmare. "Jen, Kyle can you log me in?" Imagine seventeen people yelling both their names at once. Intense. Well those were the challenges, but we also had some triumphs. Our first student post was a huge triumph because somebody had succeeded in something. Another thing was when Henry and Jen figured out why the pictures were being blocked.
This is just a short story of a challenge when Room 22 learned how to blog. Trust me, there were more.
