Amplify Student Voice through Blogging
Date & Time
Sunday, April 8, 2018, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Have you ever thought about getting your students to blog? This session will share classroom tips & experiences on how to get your students started on their own blog. Blogging provides students with an opportunity to share their own voice while writing for authentic purpose and audience. Giving our students voice, and an audience propels their writing to a new level and gives them a huge sense of connectedness and reward. Blogging can be used to leverage student voice as they publish original works, post responses and reactions to texts and prompts, while also presenting or displaying work from the content areas. Participants will experiment with Blogger, an application in G Suite. Participants will build their own blog site, and learn how to link individual student blogs to their teacher/classroom blog. Please bring a laptop, Chromebook or tablet to work with.
