This is the name of the presentation I am giving at the Northern Illinois Computing Educators (NICE) Mini-Conference this Saturday, January 31st. Stay tuned for my presentation notes, complete with links to various tools and resources.
To prepare for my workshop, my 3rd graders created posts today on our classroom blog that are reflections on the blogging experience. The questions I asked them were: What do you like about blogging? Why is it different then writing things down in your writer’s notebook? Do you like giving or receiving comments better? What is your favorite comment that you received? What is your favorite post that you have written? What else would you like to write about on the blog?
Here are some of their thoughts:
“I like blogging because typing is easier and you don’t get writer’s cramp.”
“I like receiving comments because each new one is from a new person in the world.”
“I like blogging because it is relaxing.”
Please visit “The View from 3rd Grade” to read the rest of their thoughts. Please also take 5 minutes to leave a comment. The 3rd graders have worked hard and they get so jazzed when others notice!
