So, not content to just have this professional outpouring of a blog, I’ve now set up an ICT class blog. I teach Grades Prep, 3/4 and 5/6 and am amazed and proud by the work they create and want to share it with the world. I’m not really sure about the practicalities of that right now but have funnelled my enthusiasm into setting up the blog. Sometimes I miss not having a ‘conventional’ classroom and this is definitely one of those times. I wish I’d discovered blogging as a classroom teacher – the lure of an authentic audience would motivate students so much and I can’t think of a better way to instill the idea of being a ‘global citizen’ than through blogging.
But I shall have to be happy with a slightly watered down version of the student blogging experience – watch this space to see how it goes!
