Ms. Mills' Blog

Ms. Mills' Blog | Blogging in Education | Scoop.it

The blog is primarily a vehicle for disseminating homework assignments (though, of course, they're on the board in my room & in student's planners as well). I also use the blog for sharing study materials with my students: previous years' tests for practice, links to good study sites online, Powerpoints used in class for test review, etc. There is always a huge spike in the number of visits to my blog as a test date approaches!

 

Finally, I used my blog when I taught a writing inservice on our district workshop day after we returned from winter break. All the handouts I would have wasted paper on, all the student examples I shared in the class that day, were all posted on my blog for attendees to reference later.

Sharing The Planet

Sharing The Planet | Blogging in Education | Scoop.it

I create a blog each year for our year-long Exhibition project. Throughout the year as we conduct various learning engagements, entries are made to the blog to record our inquiry process and our learning. Students assist with this process by identifying topics to add, crafting the text, and using digital photography to add visuals. We use iWeb to craft the blog and upload it to SchoolPage.
