Email blog posting

I just texted a test blog entry, but it has not shown up yet.  I mentioned to the students that they could set up their blogs so they could email entries to their blog.  This is my first entry sent through email.  This will also be a great way to make entries to the blogs, especially in light of the issue that one of the students is having with AOL.  AOL will not let her get to the controls of her blog, and Internet Explorer is not functioning properly on her computer.  I mentioned the possibility of emailing entries as an option - I'll have to check in with her next class to see if she tried it or decided that she is going to blog from school computers.

On a different note, my dad called me tonight and mentioned that Waverly schools gave each of their students a laptop with digital copies of all of their textbooks on it.  He said that the students will use the laptops to take notes, take quizzes/tests, etc.  Apparently, the laptops were funded by a grant - I'll have to check into that.

  1. very nice - I wondered about the title. The subject of the email becomes the title of the blog. Very cool.
