Expanding on my previous post, I found this software called Laconica: http://laconi.ca/
It has been used by several websites to create blogging with 140 or less characters. What’s nice is that it generates RSS which can then be syndicated. Whether it be on our District website or on any of the school wiki’s it can be syndicated via the RSS readers.
I don’t know if any teacher would want to use this, but it may be useful for PR staff. I have yet to determine an exact need or use for it. Rather I am just exploring the functionality of it all. It can definetly add life to a website by incorporating instant updates via RSS.
