KSTF Blogging Workshop Phase2
EXPLORING REAL CLASSROOM BLOGS
We will use our co-generated list of discipline-specific goals as an analytical lens to look at real classroom blogs in action. In all four cases, the math and science teachers intend to continue to refine their use of integrating classroom blogging into their classroom culture.
First, consider checking out the voicethread each teacher prepared to help you understand the context of the blogging you will be exploring (you CERTAINLY do not need to listen to all of any one person’s comments). Then, check out the classroom blogs and look for evidence of meeting the goals we collectively outlined before.
I will ask you to report out 2 things related to each of our goals: 1) what’s being done that excites or intrigues you and 2) what seems to be the critical way this activity was implemented that allowed the benefits to be realized. If you are game, leave your comments to the blog authors on their voicethreads (either now or later…)!
