  8. 8. Embed On Your Blog <ul><li>The ability to embed allows your students to use a number of different tools and then store all of the information in one spot. </li></ul><ul><li>Great for differentiation (e.g., a student that might have difficulty writing, could create an “audio” blog, or add in a slideshow instead). </li></ul>

  18. 18. The Arts <ul><li>VoiceThread is great for reflecting on art work (a curriculum expectation). You can then embed the VoiceThread into a class blog. </li></ul>http://avivadunsiger.blogspot.com/2010_11_01_archive.html
  19. 19. More on The Arts <ul><li>Lino or Wallwisher can also be great for reflecting. We did this reflection after a school musical. </li></ul>http://avivadunsiger.blogspot.com/2010/12/reflecting-on-our-musical.html
  20. 20. The Logistics of Blogging <ul><li>We blog up in the computer lab. I often give students “free writing time” when we go to the lab. They can blog on any topic that interests them. We often brainstorm ideas first to help them with their blogging. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Blogging During Centres <ul><li>Students often blog in groups of three or four during literacy centres or math centres. This is when they have a more specific topic (often related to a content area). </li></ul>
  22. 22. Blogging On The SMART Board <ul><li>Students write the post together in GoogleDocs, and we add the post to our group blog. There is also a more specific topic for these posts. </li></ul>
  23. 23. http://grade1.litcircuits.com/2010/11/03/the-paper-bag-princess-grade-2-literacy-centre-activity/
  24. 24. Blogger’s Café: A Backchannel <ul><li>Students blogged on the iPod Touches to write “notes” during Literacy Centre and Math Centre Review. Now blog using the Livescribe Pen. Could also do this on a single computer or laptop in the classroom. </li></ul>
  25. 25. http://grade1.litcircuits.com/page/10/
  26. 26. Blogging Platforms For Primary <ul><li>Kidblog </li></ul><ul><li>Edublogs </li></ul><ul><li>Class Blogmeister </li></ul>
  27. 27. What About Blogging In Kindergarten? <ul><li>List of friends </li></ul><ul><li>List of words that they can read and write </li></ul><ul><li>Simple pattern sentences </li></ul><ul><li>Wordles – These are great for lists! </li></ul><ul><li>Video Recordings & Common Craft Videos </li></ul><ul><li>Audio Recordings – Very easy if you have a Livescribe Pen! – Vocaroo & AudioBoo are great too! </li></ul>
  28. 28. Common Craft Video <ul><li>http://kidblog.org/MissDsClass2/mya19/a-common-craft-video-an-under-the-sea-adventure/ </li></ul>Great activity for Oral Language ! I actually did these for Show and Tell too!
  29. 29. Audio Recordings <ul><li>http://kidblog.org/MissDsClass2/avery35/bloggers-cafe-literacy-centres/ </li></ul>Students can write as little or as much as they want and expand on all ideas orally too. Great for beginning writers or those that struggle with elaborating on ideas in writing !
  30. 30. Final Words of Advice <ul><li>The more opportunities to blog, the better. Students will then be far more independent at this task, and produce far better work too. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t give up! Blogging can be difficult at the beginning, but really does produce an excellent digital portfolio of a student’s work. </li></ul>
