At an unconference in Auckland yesterday, Jill Hammonds showed me this little blogging client that she uses with her wordpress blog. I think I’ll try it in class instead of the SRWare option I have at the moment.
Update: Takes its proxy settings from internet
explorer, but has no way to work with proxy servers that require
authentication like schoolzone. :-(

The next thing to consider is how to use these tools yourself and then introduce them to the class.
I started of by publishing all children’s work myself. Usually I
would say, "When you’ve finished that piece of writing I’ll publish it
on the blog".
For an item brought to share with the class I’d photograph it with my
phone, bluetooth the photo to my laptop and upload it to the blog
(about 2 minutes work). I’d add "story coming…" under the photo
and ask children to download/print out a blog template
and write their story/information into it for adding to the
photo. Then I’d type it up. Occasionally I’d log in to
wordpress and guide children through blogging(publishing) their own
writing. Finally I settled on using Windows Live Writer.
Coming soon-setting up & using Live Writer.
