Just a quick intro: I am Rachel Boyd from Nelson!
I teach a great class of year 2/3 students and am also a Lead Teacher in our ICT cluster. I've been blogging with junior students for 2 years now and we are loving every minute of it. I'm constantly amazed at the way that our kids take everything in their stride and think nothing of using and adding another web2.0 tool to their learning kit!
I thought that these two presentations from Teacher Tube that I made this year might be useful/interesting for some of you. The first video is my 6 & 7 year old's candid, unscripted take on what a blog is and why they love them; the second video is a presentation I made on the benefits students can gain from blogging.
Enjoy and let me know your thoughts/questions etc.
