    I’m wondering if it would be possible for a teacher to set up a blog here – or direct students to this point and hold an online discussion. Format: – perhaps amongst the class, or the whole class year at one school, or alternatively between 2 schools, perhaps not in the same country.

    Eg – would each student require an email address?
    (easy to do, using gmail for example)

    Interesting idea, I may persue.

    Hi Sharon,

    Thanks for your interest in the ARKive blog! If there are particular topics on science, conservation or biodiversity you would like your students to discuss we could feature the topic in an ARKive blog which you could then direct your students too to discuss further.

    In order to comment on an ARKive blog you do have to submit an email address but your students could all share a general class email address and just make sure to submit their own names when they commented.

    Please do let us know if we can help further.
