Schools Blogging

Scoilnet Webhosting & Blogging Service is currently in “Beta” (Trial) phase. A number of schools have received their accounts and are currently trying out the different features in WordPress. We will feature some of these schools in the near future.
The numbers of Irish schools blogging are increasing as well a number of teachers and students with their own personal blogs.
Scoilnet has a list of all schools that we are aware of that are blogging.
If your school is blogging and not on the list, let Scoilnet know.
