There has been several comments placed on our blogs over the last several days that basically say "you are changing education. You are changing what it means to be educated." Strong words and probably unwarranted, but my kids beamed yesterday when I read these to them. Several kids had tears in their eyes (as I did too!). They are seeing themselves as role models for other kids and teachers who want to try this out.
got me thinking - at some point should we publicize our class blogs to the AHS community? Right now the kids know how to get to them - and maybe some of them tell their parents, but should we put links on the AHS web site? In the Weekly Warrior? An article in the Drumbeat? I'd be curious what those of you who are already blogging with your classes think. Some of it also depends on how you setup your class blogs for comments. If you set it to any registered user, then parents could comment. If you set it to only members of the blog and then invited your students to join, then parents could only view it.
