At the beginning of class, because they are a new group pf students, we popcorned out what comes to mind when you say the word "LIBRARY." Their answers included...resource, book, books, information, technology, FUN, interactive, access, reading.... What are your thoughts?
One of the students brought a very important question? What do you do if parents of your students do not want their picture on the web? (we had been viewing the video from the elementary school's student blogs). I suggested doing audio podcasts only in the beginning or making blogging an after school elective! What suggestions can you give this person for her concern?
The students are looking at different types of blogs and noting the similarities and differences found in blogs. I will post some of their findings at a later date.
I had fun...I hope they did too (and I hope they learned a little something about blogs as well!)
