Blogging: Start Slow in Steps

 

What:

It's not easy dipping into new waters, so how could one start? For blogging, I started slow and have documented these steps in my blog in several posts. A summary with links is in the post, Timid to Blog? Try this...  Briefly, we started with notecards and sticky notes, responding first to a prompt on a notecard and passing that around for peers to comment, and finally discussing which comments were helpful to the author or others. Next we commented on stories in Tween Tribune first together, then in partners, discussing how our comments furthered the conversation. We then started class blogs. Have there been problems? Here is a summary for some issues.

Awareness

Students developed the important skill of commenting to further a conversation and began to develop their own ideas for "blogging a conversation."  The notecard/comment activity helped students understand the blog conversation by creating the artifact for a physical world blog. When my PLN friend, Marsha Ratzel, read our story, she added her own twist (a gallery walk of the physical blog and blogging licenses). This is how the story grows; what can you add?
