Bring the World in – Blogging with Your Students
A few months ago, I remember reading a post by Joan Young, “Challenging Myself to New Ventures“, where she thoughtfully compared how she felt about presenting online for the first time with a roller coaster ride. I can totally understand how she felt, because I’m on my roller coaster ride now…
When I started my blog I wrote about my Twitter adventure and how my Personal Learning Network or PLN keeps surprising me each day. My teaching has changed greatly, I started blogging and so have my students, and now it turns out: I’ll be presenting about blogging with students on the Virtual Round Table Conference (#VRT10), which is a free semi-annual online event.
Blogging with my students has been an amazing experience for me and the kids. Yes… their writing and reading skills have improved, but blogging is so much more than that. We have expanded our classroom walls and brought the world into it. What is more, this has led to a wonderful learning environment.
I’m really excited about sharing our adventure. My presentation “Bring the World in – Blogging with Your Students” will be on October 9th at 5pm GMT. You can also check out all the upcoming presentations here.
Let’s continue learning and sharing together. I’m really looking forward to seeing you all there!
