ARTISTIC BLOGGING!

When it comes to student blogging, one can safely draw the conclusion that a teacher will never run out of ideas while implementing it! In one of the most recent lessons in the computer room of the school, the 13-year-old D' Class students had the chance to  conduct a web search on the topic we had just talked about using their course book: art. The result was amazing; not only were they willing to discover more about the subject (which does not usually appeal to all teenagers), but they also happily realised that they do have a favourite artist and spotted relevant information and pictures, which were published on their class blog later on for their readers to reflect on.


On top of all that, we stumbled upon a splendid website I myself had no knowledge of. That was the Visual Art Encyclopedia (www.wikipaintings.org) which allows its users to conduct elaborate searches on the artists or work of arts they are interested in. By blogging, learning never stops!
