Julia Howe's Notes for 3 sessions.

Student Blogging in the Primary Classrooms
How do you help move teachers into this venue for primary grades?
  • Fear of the unknown for parents, teachers and admin
  • Utilizing guidelines in student blogging (Heather- Tempe)
  • School Fusion, Gaggle.net in Alhambra, both offer student blogging
    • very secure and safe
    • highest area of use is in the blogging section of Gaggle
    • Generally teacher creates the blog to use in the classroom (discussion topics)
    • Teacher monitored
    • Student can be moved to "trusted" user, no longer monitored by teacher
    • Generic user names given to student
  • Vanessa (Cartwright)
    • Also has School Fusion, not using for blogging
    • ELL classrooms using iPads, iTouches
    • Hoping to go to Google, a couple of classes using Blogger
    • 1st graders blogging
    • Have 21st Century Classrooms with "bunches" of tech
  • Terri (Scottsdale)
    • Storyjumper
    • Comiclife
    • Kidspiration
  • Ideas for encouraging teachers to blog
    • Take a class, use the tech, see that they are using, they earn additional hours (3 hour class, use tech, get additional 3 hours) Heather/Tempe
    • Alhambra is doing the same thing
    • Cartwright - 21st Century rooms required to participate and work with tech integration specialist, helping to encourage others in the District
  • Kim suggested talking about getting Tech Integ Specialist together to talk about issues we face
