Wow, it’s been positively ages since I posted on the blog. Life’s been a little hectic recently, and I’ll admit to being a bit distracted. I do promise to try and post a bit more regularly in the upcoming weeks!
I’m in the last week of our Term 3 holidays, and I thought I’d have a bit of a flashback moment and share with you all a presentation I did in August last year on blogging with early years students.
Tech Talk Tuesdays, for those of you who don’t know them, are free online professional development sessions for teachers. They do run on Australian EST, but the recordings are also posted afterwards, and there’s some fantastic presentations up there. I don’t often get to attend at the time because our school has meetings on Tuesday afternoons, but I do go back and watch them when I get a chance.
Anyway, on the presentation…
Little Smarties – Blogging in the Early Years (click the recording link at the end of the post) is all about my journey using blogging as a tool in my (then Prep and) Prep/1 classrooms from 2011-2012. I still blog with my current group of P/1s, too!
Some of the topics covered include:
- The technology tools I have access to in my classroom
- Why I blog with my students
- How I blog with my students
- The benefits I’ve seen from the program
I hope that this is of use to some of you. If you have any questions about it, please don’t hesitate to ask!
And don’t forget to check out some of the other fantastic presentations on the blog!
