The three students in my Web 2.0 Computer Applications course
have been blogging since the beginning of September. Over the course of the last three weeks, they have learned about Blogger
, Google Docs
, Creative Commons
, Google Reader
, and StatCounter.
They have watched The Machine is Us/ing Us
, a TED
talk on the Predicting the next 5000 days of the Web
, the infamous (and newly updated) Shift Happens
video and countless Lee Lefever In Plain English
This is my first time teaching this course and it is taking shape as we go. It occurred to me last week that excellent blogging happens when you are passionate about what you are writing. My students now have two blogs (see if you can tell the difference).
I am proud to introduce the following new teen bloggers:
Please take the time to check out my students' blogs and leave them a comment if something strikes you.
