Spent most of the morning with Mary Nielsen’s 6th graders at Sterling. We are working to setup blogs with each of the kids. Mary is hoping to have kids write reflective journals on science issues as well as figure out ways to have kids do peer reviews.
It went very well. Anytime kids can start working with technology, you’ve get engaged people. Before we got started, one kid said that “journals are evil!” By the time he had created his own blog and got his first and second message posted, we could hardly get him out of the room.
Some very cool possibilities! And the best part is that we really don’t even know for sure what those possibilities are yet.
More updates later.
