Collaborating in a Blogging Triad - NECC - 6/29/08

June 29 - 12:30-3:30
Triad - CIT, Librarians, and Administrators
Focus on Science today since their students were weak in this area of content
  • Cener for Applied Research in Educational Technology - CARET -
  • Educational and Library Research Services - and
  • 21st Century Skills - Teacher as "Orchestrator of Learning"
  • Clip - "Shake it Up" from Teacher Tube
  • Clip - "Blogs in Plain English"
  • Will Richardson has some great information


Student Blogs

Elementary Science Blog

  • Worked in teams or triads - investigating a curricular blog based on Elementary science objectives. They used both Class Blogmesiter and Edublogs
  • Triad Model - Started with the end in mind - improving achievement in science and writing.
  • Not adding to the teacher plate - used the unit that was already being used in science - Ocean Ecosystem
  • Worked from Essential Questions
  • Class Blogmeister Version - done with administrators - to build their capacity in blogging
  • Edublog Version -
  • Used real world experience from the Texas Newspaper to begin the lesson - an oil spill off the coast of Texas
  • Make a Prediction Post
  • The Food Chains Post
  • The Food Chain Disturbed Post
  • Narrative Writing Post
  • What Can You Do? Post
  • Using blog along with the materials they are already using in the lesson
  • Blogs lend themselves beautifully to differentiated instruction
  • Made a special effort to have a web publication form in place as students began to use blogs for their class work.

Digital Citizenship

Our Turn

  • We formed Triads - administrator, CIT, Librarian
  • We made comments about the ocean oil spill
  • My new partners are: Kristal and Adrienne from Courtry Club Hills, IL
  • Both are principals or asst. principals making decisions on the use of Blogs with their teachers and teacher teams.
