Blogs in the classroom


  • Watch the video below on blogs to get a general understanding of them.


  YouTube plugin error  






  • One of the coolest web applications that I have ever used is called Animoto.  Animoto basically takes your pictures and text, sets them to music, and creates an awesome video with cool transitions and effects. 
  • We are going to make an Animoto video today.  First watch my example below.





  • I created this video in less than 20 minutes.  I simply found pictures on the web and saved them.  I then uploaded the pictures to Animoto, added my text, selected a song, and created the video.
  • Let's give it a try.

A student could sum up the day and blog.
Students could blog on the literature that they are reading.

I can use blogs to network with other professionals as well as communicate with my family, friends, and students.

I would have my students blog as a means of written reflection. After each day or week, the students could blog about what they learned in class. It can later serve as a tool for review. I could also have my students blog while working on an ongoing project, especially in science. They can write about the discoveries they made, conclusions they've drawn, etc.

A debate about how differently children feel about a class or group novel.

This would be a way to describe a trip and students who are interested could read and make comments. Could also recap the day's activities for students to read.
