  14. 16. The power of comments!!! <ul><li>H eatherb | [email_address] | </li></ul><ul><li>What wonderful photographs Ann. I loved visiting your backyard and noticed just how green everything is now and how full all the dams are. Having seen it all looking parched just a few months ago I fully appreciated the transformation that had taken place </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] | </li></ul><ul><li>This is so interesting. I especially like how you and your neighbors help each other. What a better world this would be if everyone did this. And I love the picture of your Maggie and Fergus! </li></ul><ul><li>Anita Marie </li></ul><ul><li>My Backyard is Seattle Washington- and it’s in everything I write. Nothing has inspired me more. I can see you all feel the same way too. Pretty great, isn’t it? Anita Marie </li></ul><ul><li>Lori </li></ul><ul><li>I seem to end up visiting many volcanoes– Mt. St. Helens, Kilauea, Lassen, Yellowstone– now I have one more to add to the list– Mt. Rouse! </li></ul><ul><li>From Mt Rouse Volcano Discovery Centre , 2007/08/29 at 5:46 AM </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  15. 17. <ul><li>travellr [email_address] | </li></ul><ul><li>our local railway is separated from my house by a road and a field/orchard. After 17 years of living so close my nights are no longer punctuated by the sound of passing trains but on still day I can hear the sound of the road crossing barrier warnings. Far from hating the sound of trains, I think the sound of their passage is comforting </li></ul><ul><li>I am an Australian living in Qatar in the Middle East and was scrolling down the posts and found a picture of a plate of HOME BAKED Anzac biscuits. “What a horrible tease!!!” I began thinking until I scrolled a little further and the recipe was there as well!!! I can TASTE them just by looking at the picture…. and now I can go home and make a batch. </li></ul>
  16. 18. Steph’s independent post prompt I’ll ask the world a question (that’s you) and you answer it whats your favorite movie and why?
  17. 19. <ul><li>So wrote a grade 5 girl, independently, as her own post prompt </li></ul><ul><li>15 replies from countries including the UK, Israel, NZ and USA </li></ul>
  18. 20. Some of the comments <ul><li>G’day Steph. I am in Tasmania and have a class blog as well Now to answer your question - my favourite movie would have to be “The Sound of Music” because I like Julie Andrews as an actress and I also love the songs in the movie. The storyline is also great. </li></ul><ul><li>   Riptide Furse // Jul 31st 2008 at 6:42 am </li></ul><ul><li>I have many favorite movies. One of them is The Pistol: Birth of a Legend. Although the title makes it sound like a violent movie it isn’t about guns. It’s about achieving your dreams. It is the true life story of “Pistol” Pete Maravich. He is one of the best basketball players ever. The movie follows him on his journey to becoming a pro basketball player and how he overcame so many obstacles by practicing and keeping focused on what he wanted. </li></ul><ul><li>   Lisa Thumann // Jul 31st 2008 at 6:48 am </li></ul><ul><li>I like a lot of movies. But I love The “Shawshank Redemption”. Tim Robbin’s character, Andy, proves to me again and again that if it’s important to you - it’s worth fighting for. </li></ul><ul><li>I also happen to love Morgan Freeman’s voice, so the fact that he is the narrator is an added bonus. </li></ul><ul><li>See for more information about the movie. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>

There is a map that can be satellite or a labeled world map that shows the flag of the countries. Lots of features that compliment cluster maps. I’ve found it great for locating countries etc </li></ul>
  22. 24. Meeting Ines
  23. 25. <ul><li>Thanks, Murcha! </li></ul><ul><li>I have been honored to translate you. Your post will be great as an exemple of the wide variety of possible activities that blogging with students enable, with the respective benefits both academic and pedagogic. Hopefully students parents will be relieved and enthousiastic about the new horizon their children are about to unveil. Trough translation we keep in the spirit of web2.0, where collaboration and sharing remain prior values, thus enabling beginners to take “on line-life lessons” from veterans and accelerate their own development. </li></ul><ul><li>Ines </li></ul>

I have no choiceA but to ask all 8 sections to prepare a powerpoint presentation and when the opportunity arise any day they should be ready.We have lots of pictures to show to you. We want also to see pictures of your students and whatever activities in school or outside they are involved in. The boys would love to know more what life is in Australia as seen through the eyes of their fellow students. Rox from Manila </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
