Blogging can be challenging, to begin with… but I have learned a huge amount already and am learning more as I go along!
“Communication works for those who work at it“ (John Powell)
What do you think of the idea of setting up a class blog? It has great potential for motivating writing, and fostering thinking and collaboration. One option could be for each student (or pair) to have a turn to write a post, every few days. This could be an opportunity for them to express their understanding of the unit as it unfolds. It would be an interesting record of student thinking as the learning progressed, especially if others are encouraged to comment on the posts.
Any ideas? Please comment!
