Just a quick note to say that I’ve been enjoying the Teachers Teaching Teachers webcast for the past few weeks. Here is a piece of the write-up from last night’s episode. Check it out.
Our conversation this evening began innocently enough with Gail Desler, the technology liaison for the Area 3 Writing Project in and around Sacramento, California, describing her work over the past four years with blogging in the classroom. Last year 3 different Writing Projects and 5 schools joined together in a project called â€œYouth Voices: Coast to Valley.â€ Given that we have stolen their name, â€œYouth Voicesâ€ in an attempt to broaden our network of schools, we are delighted to include Gail and her teachers in the elgg at http://youthvoices.net! Last night Gail said that some of the same teachers from last yearâ€™s work would be joining the new Youth Voices. A great question that Gail has been asking is, â€œHow can we sustain and deepen online conversations on a blog?â€ And part of this has to do with finding the right balance between personal blogging and common blogging around a theme or text.
