Teachers, students learn about blogging

More than 200 teachers and students from 100 schools across Denpasar have joined the city education agency’s five-day Computer Expo since its start on Monday, learning how to create their own blogs and online journals.

Activists from the Bali Bloggers Community (BBC) taught teachers and students about how to become well-informed and passionate bloggers.

“Creating a blog is simple and inexpensive. A blog can assume the role of the school newspaper as a medium through which teachers and students can share ideas and interact with each other,” BBC activist Agus Sumberdana said.

The BBC was established in November 2007 in Denpasar.

The expo also organized a Flash animation and caricature competition. []
