Posterous - a blog can be for a week

Posterous allows anyone to post whatever they wish (photos, videos, mp3's, files and of course text) by email and posterous will take care of the rest. But, set up an account and you can take advantage of so much more. During this week my school is using the theme of 'International Week' to promote cultural awareness and our place in the world. I set up internatweek on Posterous as a blogging platform that could be used quickly and easily by the children in my class. The children are using it to blog about their learning, post photos with my iPhone using the brilliant PicPosterous app, record interviews with each other using Easi Speak mics and upload them to the site and embed a Google Earth Map showing where we come from.

Posterous is the perfect blogging platform for Primary classrooms. It's simple to set up, easy to use and within minutes you are blogging to the world. And it's perfect for short term projects such as our week long activity.Blogs don't have to be for life, they can be for a week. (Thanks to @johnjohston for that)
