Apologies for cross posting... 

Blogging is a fantastic resource for teachers of all disciplines. It develops ICT skills, encourages writing and expression and can be as creative as one's imagination, for example Heather Blakey's fantastic site - http://www.dailywriting.net/BlakeyWeb.htm 

So if you are keen to learn about blogging and the variety of web 2.0 tools that can enhance learning, VITTA have just the event for you. 

Our 'live to learn, learn to blog' event is suitable for novices and appeals to teachers from all disciplines.
