I am here with middle school and high school educators learning about blogging. I am asking them these familiar questions… their responses are in italics.
1. What is a blog? A journal. Online conversation. A way for people to share comments, questions, answers, ideas in general. A blog might have a specific target audience.
2. What is the read/write web? Maybe it’s used to respond to something that you read. You can not only read information on the web, but you can post to the web.
3. What do these things mean to you and your students? We work with lanuage arts… this gives students an authentic audience for their writing. It’s a forum for discussion beyond the classroom walls.
We’re going to learn a lot more about these technologies in the next two and half hours… here we go!
