Gabriela, I'm sorry that I didn't see your message - luckily it is recorded.  It was Eastern time zone.  So Sorry!

Hi!  The blog webinar that I advertised earlier this week went well and was recorded:
You will want to go to Wednesday, April 20 to find it and you will login as guest.  Everything went well except the audio was soft, be prepared to turn your sound up or plug in speakers or a headset to hear it more comfortably.
Within the session are ideas on how to explore curriculum using blogging from more basic applications to advanced.

Hi!! I just joined!

I am very interested in the use of blogging for reflective learning. I work with university students (this days, mainly engineers). I am also a teacher trainer in edutechnologies. And I blog, but collectively with my collegues.

(Sorry, all that in Spanish, I am Mexican!)

Below the video is a link to the site it is pulled from.  I imagine that you can find something more appropriate for their age group.  There are tons posted on youtube also!

Very cool. A little edgy for my 7th grade girls, but I get the idea. Thanks for sharing!

Although our students create them, this is my favorite (created by a library friend of mine)

This is always our example to students:
