Because they don’t have friends! – so said Freda Ross Head Teacher of Pencaitland Primary School on Tuesday when I pointed her towards my blog entry on SELS. The disciplinary papers are in the post!
But does she have a point ?- the majority of exc-el bloggers are male. Why are women more reticent to blog – or do they just have more friends?
I think part of the problem – if indeed it is a problem – is to do with the idea that blogging has a technical focus. If this is the case this I think we need to do everything in our power to overcome this barrier by focussing upon the process and the value of communication – as opposed to the technological background
