Hats off to Dave Boardman for a great presentation on blogs, Crank up the Volume: Giving Students a Voice with Weblogs, at the Learning in a 2.0 World sponsored by ACTEM. Only a real pro could pull off a blog presentation without internet access!
Dave combined excellent examples of blogging by his students at Messalonskee High School and Winthrop High School with easy to use advice for teachers to get started with their own classrooms.
The consistent message…learning is about conversations. Students need to have these conversations to grow in their learning and to expand their world view. Blogs are one way of having and supporting these conversations with a broad audience.
