Classroom teacher Nicole McMahon at St Luke the Evangelist School in Blackburn has developed a blog for her Prep class.
It would be great to make connections with others through our blog. In the Prep Classroom, we have commenced a blog sharing our learning in the classroom.
At the moment it is in its very beginning phase but the goal is to have children using this class blog as a tool to reflect on their learning – not quite an individual PLN but rather a class learning network to make connections with the outside world. Being that the children are 5 or 6 years old, the content of our blog reflects this in its colour and creativity.
Nicole has set up blogging guidelines for her students and parents to ensure safety and respect for every student and parent. What a great space Nicole has created for sharing the work and learning of students. A bright and inviting space that showcases and celebrates learning. Congratulations Nicole!
Congratulations on your blog. Since I also live in Blackburn,perhaps your students would like to link to my author website (www.hazeledwards.com ), so they can see that stories do happen in their local area and travel via print, digitally and via film to children in other countries. Especially as the new ‘There’s a Hippopotamus on Our Roof Eating Cake’ has been filmed recently around here.
Wonderful example of a student centered resource and PLN!
Nicole I think your Prep blog is amazing. Well done on such an exciting bright idea. The students must be very proud sharing their day and their work with family and friends through the blog.
