Blogging with Students - Podstock 2011


Tomorrow we are leading a session on blogging with students at the Podstock 2011 conference in Wichita, KS.  The plan is to facilitate discussion around blogging with students and spend time creating a class in kidblog while exploring the platform.  

Follow the conference on Twitter using #podstock2011.

We will be using a live document to aid and document our discussion.  Here is the link to the doc.  It is a semi-organic document that will be filled with ideas and information during the session.  Feel free to join in even if you can’t make it!  The doc will be most useful to reference after the session is over.

Here is the proposal for the presentation just in case you are going to be at the conference tomorrow and are wanting to know more about what exactly we will be doing.  We look forward to seeing you!

Our plan for this session is to provide teachers with an engaging conversation about student blogging with additional hands-on time to create and setup blogs for their students. Both presenters blog with their students. After experiencing the benefits of blogging with our students we are eager to share this valuable tool with other educators. We have experience using Kidblog, Blogger, and Edublogs with our students. During this presentation we will demonstrate setting up student blogs with Kidblog due to the extreme easy of use.
The session focus will be on sharing ideas about blogging best practices. This conversation will be held verbally while also utilizing a backchannel discussion using Google Docs to aid in engagement and comprehension.
