Blogs blocked
Local ICT advisers are discouraging schools from blogging because they are easily 'hacked'. OK blogs are public, but so what? The only unfortunate incident I'm aware of is Marc Prensky reporting on unwelcome postings. Meanwhile other schools have been introduced to the arcane practice of pencil and paper blogs :sigh:
At the same time, work on intelligent fabrics and wired clothing gathers momentum. Soon you won't need to worry about knotting up your hands-free and your i-pod headphones - all will be one - convergence in your clothing. This website has the latest links on wearable computers.

Am very cross re the anti blogging thing.
I think maybe we should not do wall displays in case someone writes on them.

I think I like the second comment better than the first comment! No, seriously, I have heard about ICT advisers suggesting to teachers that they do blogging...but not for real. Show the kids a 'safe' blog, explain what a blog is, and then ask the children to do one in pencil. Perhaps that's even worse than the ban-the-blog approach I reported on!
