4th Grade Bloggers

“Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods.”

Aristotle

Today one of our fourth grade classes entered into the Blogosphere.  The teacher was a little hesitant but i am extremely proud of her bravery.  Luckily she is supported not just by her technology facilitators and me but also by a great group of teachers from all over the world – her classes BlogPals.  This is something that Kim Cofino invited us to from Thailand; we had one teacher leap onboard initially but I am sure we will have many more classes involved in projects like this as this takes off.  Kim’s blog is full of resources on blogging at the elementary level and this post is a great starting point for anyone helping a new elementary class to enter the world of blogging.

Blogging has been at the forefront of my mind recently as i finalize a presentation that i will be giving in San Jose, Costa Rica next week.  In reflection, I proposed the project to the Tri-Association more than two years ago now and the difference in the world of educational blogging between then and now is nothing short of phenomenal.  I don’t know what i would have said two years ago but it sure would have been a great deal different then what i will be saying next week (more on that a little later).
