Blogging for Reluctant Writers: Have students share their ideas using sound and video - The Digital Shift

Blogging for Reluctant Writers: Have students share their ideas using sound and video - The Digital Shift | Blogging in the Classroom | Scoop.it
jamie camp's insight:

Most of these tools are blocked in our district, however, there are alternatives--albeit less easy and fun--such as using MovieMaker and/or audacity--that our students can do.

The point is that video/audio might be the hook that some kids need to encourage them to plan, write, rewrite. Also hits the media skills that are now in the TEKS.

Interactive Writing » Mapping Media to the Common Core

Interactive Writing » Mapping Media to the Common Core | Blogging in the Classroom | Scoop.it
jamie camp's insight:

Wes Fryer makes the point that "techy" words like blogging turn people (teachers) off. Referring to blogging as interactive writing makes it much more accessible to them, and opens the door for its use in the classroom.

The Clever Sheep: Paper Blogging | Blogging in the Classroom | Scoop.it

I LOVE this idea! This is a great way to introduce students to  blogging, and to guide them as they learn to comment, post, etc. Handy for those of us with such restrictive network policies that true blogging is either impossible or discouragingly difficult. Brilliant!

Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes

Reflection Facilitated by QR Codes | Blogging in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Reflection is an essential part of learning. Yes, it often hard to fit in the time for reflection. It's also challenging to make reflection something that doesn't seem boring and tedious.
jamie camp's insight:

Note

For districts w/ draconian network policies blocking QR code use:
You don't *have* to scan these codes to use Vincent's reflection questions. You can just go directly to the page

This would prompt great student blog reflections!
