"These are my notes from Matt Hardy‘s WONDERFUL presentation on February 9th on Classroom 2.0 Live about Blogging in the classroom and the platform he co-founded, KidBlog! The official title of his presentation was “Using Kidblog to Document Student Learning.” I listened to the audio-only version of this presentation available via the iTunes-U channel of Classroom 2.0 Live. I titled this post “A Vision for Interactive Writing, Student Publishing, and Digital Portfolios in the Classroom” because that summarizes a lot of the ideas Matt shared in this preso. If you’re not aware of Classroom 2.0 Live, definitely check out their website and try to attend their Saturday morning LIVE sessions! If you miss a session, however, the archives are GREAT to download and enjoy afterwards! For more resources related to interactive writing and student blogging, check out the “Interactive Writing” page of “Mapping Media to the Common Core.”
