Perspectives In Blogging
I've been using a blog in my classroom for close to two years now. My blog is like a digital chalk board. All of my assignments are posted on my blog, Songhai Concepts. In return, my students publish their homework and assignments on their blogs. Recently my students have been posting lists, facts and other useful data on their wikis. I check their blogs and their wikis and leave comments. That's how I mark papers/pages - through a digital conversation. Papers are practically non-existent in my classroom. Ninety-nine percent of the students at NMTCS have a blog.
So when Wesley Fryer posted an invite for teachers to talk about blogging, I figured I was qualified to write a few lines about why blogging is so historically important in the 21st century classroom.
I e-mailed my written comments and a voice recording to Fryer and he did the rest. The result is a sparkling short video of three classrooms from three very different places, but with at least one thing in common - blogging.
