I've been spending some time leaning more about the cabibilities of Movable Type. I have been working with Lynne Leake of Buckman Elementary helping her design her classroom web page. Initially I showed her Movable Type and what some other teachers had done with it. Her initial reaction was positive, but she wanted more. She wanted a web page that wasn't just a list of posts, but rather a template that posts would flow into.
With a bit of digging around on the Movable Type support forum, I have been learning all about category tags and how to include and exclude posts. Our first crack at Lynne's page is now up. We plan to use the same template with a few other teachers in the next few days.
