Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online

Blogging in the classroom: why your students should write online | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
For the past few months Michael Drennan's GCSE and A level students have been doing all their writing via student blogs.

 

Students realise how high the bar of public domain writing is. This can be initially intimidating, but that removes all apathy or sense of the humdrum. Asking all students to write blogs as learning unfolds and interlinks empowers the teacher to be more supportive because they're less tied to the bureaucracy; it raises challenge levels; it enables IT-skilling; it lets students see their own progress and differentiates well; it means more productive and accelerating learning-talk over rote-writing.

Hi Renee.
Wow thank you for sharing. This is a very quality presentation. Can I ask how long it took you? I am busy this week, but I want to jump in and give it a try next week. I think that this will be a great teacher resource
Renee Maufroid's comment, July 24, 2012 11:53 AM
Hi Ken!

I certainly enjoyed doing this Powtoon but since the "sound effect" is not working yet (It's a Beta version) I had to find a different way to reach my goal. I grabbed the words and the music on the internet and worked everything in Audacity to have a MP3 that could be used for the whole slideshow.
Powtoon is pretty easy to use when you know where you are going. This one took me about five hours but it was pretty complicated and collecting the sounds and pics was time consuming. I have made another one which is shorter, let's say it took me 2 hours. If you want to see it it's here:
http://www.powtoon.com/p/efwbJVM6NvF/
The people in Powtoon are very helpful if you need help.
I'll be looking forward to see what you come up with :-))))
Have anice evening
