Here’s an idea from Singapore that we need to bring to this country. Their Education Ministry and the country’s largest telecommunications company recently held the first national inter-school blogging competition. The winners were a team from a junior college and one from a girls high school.
Fifty schools entered the competition with blogs being "evaluated in terms of the depth and clarity of thought as well as the creativity of presentation by a panel". In addition, 18,000 votes were cast for the most popular blog in the group.
"Depth and clarity of thought" and "creativity". Definitely something we need to foster in schools on this side of the world.
