This is my first ever blog! Actually, I have decided to set up two blogs: this one and another on kidblogs.org for me to connect and converse via blogging with my students on their science fair projects. On one hand I am exited about this new media as it will enable conversations and inquiry into digital citizenship. On the other hand, after viewing Shelly Turkle’s TED talk, I am hoping that the use of social media does not reduce the amount of “connectedness” that I have with my students, rather that it will help bring and build a society of students whom are connected to their learning by exploring a variety of media available to them.
Everyone in the classroom will be blogging!
