"The great myth of our times is that communication is technology." Libby Larsen
Tools: Global2 blogging environment
Global2 is the Department's blogging community and is accessible to both Victorian government and Catholic schools. Global2 provides space for online communication and collaboration. Schools are able to set up student, class, teacher and school blogs. It provides opportunities for teachers and students to post and comment on blogs, collaborate on wikis, set up discussion forums and embed videos and images. Schools who have international partners or sister schools are able to invite these schools into the Global2 environment to undertake collaborative projects with their school.
