Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | Techieext | Scoop.it

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 20, 2013 9:39 PM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.

For Low-Income Kids, Access to Devices Could Be the Equalizer | Techieext | Scoop.it

Spritz is a digital tool that allows you to read one word at a time and you can set the speed. You read the "text one word at a time in our “redicle,” a special visual frame we designed for reading."

Words can be read starting at 100 words per minute up to 1000 words per minute.
Spritz will work English, Spanish, French, German, Russian and Korean. More languages will be added.

This tool is worth looking at because it may help some students who struggle with reading. The text has to be accessible online and does work on many platforms. For more information head over to the website.

Google Drive can now automatically sync all your Docs, Sheets, and Slides so you can access any file offline | Techieext | Scoop.it

Less than three hours after the last Google Drive update, Google has announced a very useful feature: automatic syncing of all your Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. You can now also create and edit drawings offline. The two features are rolling out over the next “few days” so you should see them soon if you haven’t yet.

.

To take advantage of offline access, you’ll need to use Chrome OS (it’s all set up for you) or Chrome. If you’re using the latter, here are the steps you need to take:

In Google Drive, click More on the left-hand side of the screen.Select Offline Docs.Click the blue button that says Get the app.You’ll be taken to the Chrome web store. Click Add to Chrome in the upper-right corner of the browser window.Once the app is installed, you’ll be taken to a Chrome page with the Google Drive app icon. To return to Drive, click the Google Drive icon.On the right side of the dialog on the Offline Docs page, click the blue button that says Enable offline.

If you change your mind, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of your browser window and select “Stop using Docs offline.”
