• BLOGGING: ENGAGING THE VOICE OF THE STUDENT

Traditionally, story builds community and blogging is a 21st century story circle whereby each student has a voice. Using blogs in the classroom gives each student the opportunity to have their voice heard, and as their voice is heard, the walls of the class disappear and community emerges – virtually. When student voices are engaged in the blogosphere, identity and relationships are strengthened back within the classroom walls; consequently, students build confidence as writers, readers, teachers and critics. Blogging builds community and culture in the class, but also connects us beyond, globally. This session offers inspiration and the tools to get students blogging!
