This week, Mrs. McNally published her post, “How Blogging Transformed My Classes.” In her post, Mrs. McNally weaves inspirational stories about moments of cooperation, discovery and, dare I say, enlightenment into her practical descriptions of how she set up her blog and began the process of blogging with her classes. It’s a post worth reading and sharing with other teachers who may be interested in blogging with their classes.
Another great blog to take a look at is Fiona’s Action Research Project: Sharing & Reflecting on Learning. This blog explores the step-by-step process of blogging with students. It’s full of great information derived from real-world experiences. This is another blog worth reading and sharing.
