Will Richardson has this interesting post on his conversation with his son. His son is 6 years old and blogging away! Tell us much about our upcoming generation and it reminds us teachers to constantly attune to our young 🙂
The article entitled “Meet the First National Interschool Blogging Champions” is in November’s issue of MOE Contact Online. With the event behind, the write-up does bring back much memories 🙂
Yet another article on iPods, from The Seattle Times.
Teachers in this article are using the portable players to “make podcasts, practice their vocabulary words, English as a Second Language students are using them to practice English, getting the best possible sound quality from the youngsters, which sometimes meant doing it over and over.”
In addition, busy parents too are capitalising on the technology to “keep in touch with the world their children inhabit all day at school” by programming their computers “to capture the broadcasts”.
This article off neighbornewspapers.com writes about how a teacher gives her student a voice through blogging.
Loved the ending paragraph:
“She responds beautifully to teacher needs and student needs,” Ms. Hooper said. “She has the heart of a teacher.”
makes me wonder if we were slow in responding to our students’ needs at times *hmm*
