Blog Post #11
I think it is so great that these children have their own blogs. Its helping them learn safety techniques for the internet by allowing them to explore on safe and secure websites. The blog allows them to let out their feelings and opinions and to have people comment on their ideas. The children are learning all kinds of exciting tools such as wikis and Skype. Their teacher is really helping to open their minds to new technologies and allowing them to explore their creative side. I really hope to include activities like this into my own teaching style. The children really seem to be enjoying themselves while learning.
I really enjoyed Mrs. Cassidy’s Skype interview. She discussed the “audience” students were able to reach by blogging and how wide that reach could be. As a future science teacher for high school students this really stands out as a tool I want my students to master. They would be able to listen to lectures for different teachers or professors and also from scientists around the world! Skype is such a great technology for teachers and classrooms. This was a great post and interesting interview.
