006.7 Blogging: The Value of Using It with Kids

"...and a little child shall lead them."



How much more convincing do you need?
Here's the blog itself.

These children are 6 & 7 yr olds. I think they got it.
I'm glad their teacher got it for them.
And their administration must get it too!

Of course, I AM preaching to the choir...or you wouldn't be reading this!

WOW!!!! That is sooooo awesome, can we send this to our superintendent, CIO, and other certain people in the Tech dept.??? I really wish they knew the possibilities that are available that our students are missing out on!!!

This R U L E S!!! I cannot WAIT for my Library Blog to start in August! I need to get w/ VWB and create one that will be ready for the kiddos to write, write, and write some more! Oh, and I might want to get a Library Web Page up before then, so that they have somewhere to link from! Funny how I am so progressive yet so behind at the same time!

Hi there,

Thank you SO much for featuring our video... glad so many people are enjoying what is going on in our classroom!

I have a bunch of amazing 6 & 7 year olds who just take everything in their stride and quite like being "famous" worldwide :)

Another of our favourite videos is one of them talking about what a blog is and why they love having them. You can view it here on Teacher Tube using this shortcut URL: http://tinyurl.com/24hy28

Blogging for kids is awesome and it opens up the walls of the classroom. This presentation is all about the many benefits: http://tinyurl.com/ynlvt3

Glad you enjoyed the video :)
Good luck in your area!!

Kind regards,
