This blog is worth a look...here is an excerpt
"From September to December, 2008, Sue Waters and Sue Wyatt ran an international student blogging competition. About 500 students and their teachers took part by writing posts on class blogs, student blogs or as commenters. The competition was so successful that by the end many of the students and teachers expressed a desire to continue.
So this blog has been created to:
- build on the friendships begun in 2008
- encourage more students and classrooms from throughout the World to connect with each other"
