Now it’s really late, but I don’t mind – I had to post. I’ve just got off a skype call with Clay Burell. Yesterday I didn’t know Clay but he was in the chatroom of David Warlick’s Keynote to kick off K-12 Online Conference. I used twitter to ask for student blogs for my students to read and comment on. The result was amazing! Ask and ye shall receive stuff.
Check out the links I was able to put on our class wiki to look at tomorrow!
A bit later in the conversation, Clay was generous enough to share some links to student blogs that he thought my students would enjoy. This then culminated in a skype call, using Yugma, and together we created a wikispace called YoungWriters07.
We want this to be a space that teachers can go to to find blogs for their students to read and/or comment on , and/or for a teacher to add blogs to, to increase a blog’s audience.
If you’ve got students that blog, please add them to the wiki. If you’ve found really good student blogs and the Teacher doesn’t mind, please add them to the wiki.
Let’s get student conversations and connections humming!
