Those of you interviewing for teaching jobs will appreciate advice from Pernille Ripp, an experienced elementary school teacher. I follow her blog, Blogging through the Fourth Dimension, and she just posted: More Tips for Landing that Teaching Job.
If you have time, browse further on the blog. This is a teacher who does lots of innovative technology activities with her students, including each student keeping a blog. She uses KIdBlog for this. I've read their blogs and can attest to their enthusiasm for learning through blogging. Access to their blogs is restricted, but you can read Pernille's teacher blog The Adventures in Mrs. Ripp's Class to find out how she conducts her class.
