I'm doing another Rip, Mix, Learn workshop on Friday December 16. We'll begin the day with an overview of how I use blogs and other read/write web tools in my classes; I call that session "OLÉ" -- Orchestrating a Learning Ecology (or Learning the Tango). I'll post more about that session here when it's done and ready for public consumption. We'll also touch on some of the issues surrounding blogging in the classroom that have been the focus of discussion around here for the last little while.
Like last time, I plan to model for the 20 or so teachers participating, how to use the technology by actually having them use it themselves. Lots of play time. (I learned some lessons from the last RML I did. ;-))
Anyway. I was wondering if anyone would like to join in the blogging section of the workshop which will take place starting at around 11:00 - 11:30 am central time. I'd be interested in having some "visitors from afar" skype into the conversation as well. I think Sheryl will be there and I'd love to have Bud, Clarence, Dean, Will, Anne, Mr. McNamar or Jo drop by as well as anyone else who'd like to participate.
Essentially I'm looking for teachers that have used blogs with their students. I'd like you to answer two questions for the teachers in my workshop:
»How have you used blogs with your classes?
»What impact has it had on your students' learning?
This invitation is wide open. If you're interested email me or leave me a comment on this post. Thanks! ;-)
