John C. and I have discussed the powerful model that seems to be driving the Mabry Middle School in Marietta, Georgia. The extensive site they have built and the seemingly complete buy in by the staff and community is quite invigorating.
For example, I took some time to peruse their blogs, and it seems that each of the teachers uses the blog to post what was done that day in school, upcoming items of interest (i.e. tests), and resources related to classroom content. If parents are harnessing the power of RSS feeds to these blogs, this is a great model. I will continue to explore this school’s resources.
