A primary school teacher sharing resources, practical ideas and thoughts on blogging, global collaboration and technology integration. To realise the many educational benefits of blogging and ensure your program has an extended life-span, blogging needs to be prioritised and planned for. Depending on the resources available and our current learning focus, I have used whole class, small group and rotation structures to make blogging work in my classroom. Our students need to become transliterate and develop the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media, both traditional and digital.
Blogging is an authentic way to teach both traditional reading, writing, speaking and listening, as well as multi-modal 21st century skills.
My approach involves spending 10 – 20 minutes of my daily literacy block on whole class blogging. Their task is to read a certain post on our class blog, a student blog or one of our blogging buddies’ blogs.
In her book Radical Reflections, well known children’s author, Mem Fox, states that “We’re currently wasting a lot of time by giving unreal writing tasks in our classrooms….You and I don’t engage in meaningless writing exercises in real life—we’re far too busy doing the real thing”. If we want our students to be motivated to use their emerging writing skills, we have to make writing purposeful, challenging, and real-to-life. Blogging for the sake of it or trying to blog on top of the regular classroom curriculum just isn’t going to work. Find ways to embed blogging into what you are already doing to meet your students’ learning needs and expand their horizons.
In packing up my classroom to make way for the new teacher, it has been interesting to think about what is worth storing for my future teaching career, and what is obsolete. It seems so obvious now but it took me years to realise that worksheets don’t feature heavily in an effective, modern classroom.
It is clear to me that hands-on, authentic, collaborative, open-ended tasks have a much bigger impact on students than a prescribed worksheet. As we have introduced a 1:1 netbook program in grade four at my school, we are focussing on helping the students learn how to use their new devices to their full potential.
We have been doing some work on internet safety, and this week have been looking at digital footprints.
Not one of the 54 students in my double class knew what the term meant before we delved deeper.
Unfortunately, I’ve come across a number of resources which only focus on the negatives of digital footprints and promote a culture of fear. The message I like to promote is that we should protect our digital footprints and try to ensure that they are positive. I’ve often wondered if having no digital footprint at all is almost as bad as having a negative one. I think it’s important to ensure a balance by teaching about the dangers of a negative or revealing digital footprint, while also promoting the benefits of a positive digital footprint.
Another scenario that I’ve observed fairly regularly is teachers not having a digital footprint at all.
If this article is to be believed, 92% of children under two already have a digital footprint. This is an update of some of the posts I’ve written in the past about getting parents involved in blogging. One of the many benefits of having a class blog is the strengthening of home-school relationships. After having a class blog for many years, I have found that most families enjoy being able to keep up with classroom events and student learning.
Unfortunately, I have seen a number of teachers almost give up on their class blog because of the lack of parent participation and comments.
At the start of each year when I introduce my class to blogging, there are always many students and parents who don’t know anything about blogs. I spend lot of the time at the start of the year helping my students learn about blogging, however, I have also come up with ways to educate the parents. As Linda Yollis says, everything is more powerful when parents are involved in their child’s learning so I definitely like to encourage parent participation in blogging. Like students, parents have different learning preferences and I like to offer my parents a range of different means in which they can learn about blogging. On the first day of the school year I send home a blog permission note along with an information note.
Here are some other ideas we’ve used to educate and encourage parents to become part of our blogging community.
Parent Information Evening: When we have held these in the past, blogging is one of the areas we have covered. Family Blogging Afternoon: We have held a couple of these events where family members are invited into the classroom to learn about blogging. Virtual Volunteers: Linda Yollis has come up with the idea of calling on parents to be virtual volunteers on a roster basis.
It is good blogging etiquette to reply and provides an example to students that comments are not just one-way; they are used to generate conversation and discussion. Parents may not be encouraged to keep commenting if they don’t feel their comments are being valued or acknowledged.


While the school year is quickly coming to an end, I’m looking forward to teaching grade four again in 2013. Early this term we held a parent information night and we are now delighted to have around 90% of families signed up for the 1:1 program. We are now planning our 2013 curriculum and while we already have many ideas, I’m calling on my PLN for some different viewpoints. Do you have any curriculum documents, links, advice or resources about successful 1:1 programs? We already have all the logistics of the program finely tuned but I’d love to hear any pedagogical ideas or advice. On another note, thank you to all my readers who voted for this blog and my class blog in the recent Edublog Awards.
I have transferred the information in these posts into a set of posters which might make a useful display or handout. If you’re having trouble downloading the Scribd documents, you can find the PDF versions below. Last week I attended a presentation by former police officer and cyber safety expert, Susan McLean. I do have some concerns about the way some teachers conduct themselves online and promote internet safety in the classroom. I think it’s important that internet safety is regularly discussed amongst staff in schools. Issues such as cyber bullying, sexting and internet addiction are only going to become more prominent as children’s access to technology continues to increase.
Here are some key messages around internet safety and online conduct that I believe all teachers should be aware of.
Don’t allow possible problems with internet use stop you from making the most of technology both in your professional and personal life. Teach your students about internet safety regularly and authentically. I have found blogging to be an excellent way to have an ongoing dialogue about these issues. If students or parents approach you with issues regarding cyber bullying or safe internet use, it’s important to deal with them. Choose sensible names for your usernames, email addresses etc. Use strong passwords and change them a number of times a year. Since Microsoft PowerPoint was released in 1990, it has been a key tool in many classroom ICT programs and businesses. PowerPoint is a great tool to support presentations and also has other uses such as digital storytelling. There are definitely many great alternatives to PowerPoint which I like to use myself, but it’s important to remember that these tools can also be used poorly.
I recently read a great post by Silvia Tolisana (aka Langwitches) which had a lovely focus on storytelling. A task earlier in the year where the students were using PowerPoint demonstrated to me that they had developed some habits which could be improved upon. Begin by dividing their topic into sub categories and work out the overview of their presentation.
Use resources that they understand, put the information in their own words and include a reference section in their PowerPoint. There was a focus on oral language, and students had learnt new skills in regards to planning, researching, referencing, attribution, Creative Commons images etc. The children loved having the choice of who to work with, what topic to explore and how to create their models. We had a numeracy curriculum day at my school today and I was asked to present a workshop on online maths sites. I shared one or two examples of maths resources that could be used for all four areas of our maths lesson structure. A + Click: This site has quick activities for all age groups to develop logical reasoning and creative thinking.
Studyladder: I like using the IWB resources and explanation videos as another way to teach a concept. Participants were given time to play and find resources that would be useful in their classroom. Since I started teaching, advances in technology and online communication have changed the way people interact and access information.
There are always a couple of parents without email addresses (I’m finding this is becoming less frequent). Kelly Jordan and I have surveyed our parents a couple of times and found they really enjoy this method of communication. The blog houses a lot of information about what is happening in our classroom, including a regularly updated Google Calendar on the left sidebar. I’ve found the class blog combined with parent emails means there is always a channel of information available for parents. I’d love to find new ways to continue to make parent communication easy and effective for all parties.

Engage your students in reviewing adverbs with this fun set of Thanksgiving powerpoint lesson plans! Just used it in my classes and my students said the pieces of chalk seemed to be 3D images. I’m giving a half hour presentation on homosexuality in public schools and this is PERFECT! When I first began my program, I just tried to squeeze blogging into my already busy curriculum. The lack of momentum led to low student interest and lack of opportunities for explicit teaching and learning.
It should to be integrated into the curriculum; busy classrooms rarely have time for “add ons”. Over time, my students have gained access to more devices and this year we implemented a 1:1 netbook program.


This is a chance to read our latest posts and comments, and take a look at what our blogging buddies are learning. Through blogging, we have been able to introduce or reinforce a wide range of literacy conventions in an authentic, ongoing context.
I’m definitely looking forward to my new adventure as a mum but know there will be a lot I will miss about being in the classroom.
I find it liberating to get rid of things I no longer need and I subscribe to the notion that a cluttered environment leads to a cluttered mind.
Many parents seem to value worksheets as the key to education and see classroom education as easily replaced by paper work. However, I have come to realise that spending hours on beautiful bulletin board displays isn’t a good use of my time. Encouraging students to avoid posting or doing anything online just seems counter productive. These issues are worrisome to me when thinking about the need for digital footprints to be discussed in classrooms. They are busy people who need education, encouragement and ongoing invitations to participate. This explains to readers (including parents) what a blog is, why we blog and how to comment. We have borrowed her idea many times as a way to encourage family participation in blogging. This is a great way to offer blogging news or tips (amongst other classroom news and reminders). Rather than helping students in the classroom, they can assist online by replying to students and engaging in conversations. Go ahead, I have included a CC-BY-NC license for the PDF files. Simply credit me as the original author and link back. A range of factors and research was considered when our school decided on the Acer Travelmate but this is not what this post is about.
It’s so important that teachers are equipped to teach about these issues as a preventative, and follow-up issues as they occur. Students should also be taught about plagiarism, copyright, Creative Commons, search engines and effective research techniques. If you’re not sure about the online spaces that your students and school community are using, take time to explore and find out how the various sites work.
Encourage your students to talk to you about any concerns they might be having with their internet use. I was inspired by a lot of her advice and decided I needed to teach my grade four students how to use PowerPoint well. The students were more interested in adding sounds, animations and a rainbow of colours, rather than collecting well researched information which they could present to an audience. The students enjoyed giving each other feedback and it was clear that every student had come along way since their earlier attempt at presenting with PowerPoint. In my eyes, PowerPoint is not dead and is something I will continue to use in my classroom along with an assortment of other tools.
The audience was diverse with teachers from all grade levels as well as CRTs (casual replacement teachers) and student teachers. Think of the learning intention first. When you find a good online activity, it can be tempting to want to just use it in your classroom.
There are games for all areas of the maths curriculum and many are timed which allows for some friendly competition. No sign in required.
Studyladder also has many other resources for all areas of the curriculum. Free sign up required.
Woodlands is one my students really enjoy with links to many activities to practise maths skills. No sign in required. There are also excellent printable charts to use around your classroom on the site. No sign in required. For example, last week we held a successful Family Blogging Afternoon where students could teach a special person in their life about blogging and global collaboration. There are many fabulous free resources and interactives for Australian teachers and students.
This might have been a few minutes during transition times or while the students ate their lunches. It can replace other more traditional methods of reflective writing, journalling or completing work in exercise books. I’ve had to simplify things over the years to devote more time to avenues that can offer my students amazing outcomes, such as blogging and global projects.
Parents won’t be willing or able to get involved in blogging if they don’t know anything about it. For parents who prefer a more visual description, I have created a video explaining how to comment. Family Blogging Month is basically a competition where students try to get as many family members as possible to comment on the class blog. You can also thank the parents who have been commenting and invite parents to comment on particular posts.
These are important areas for teachers and students to know about if they want to use the internet effectively and legally.
There was everything from a volcano pinata to a electronic earthquake, cyclone in a bottle, tsumani storybook, bushfire diorama, exploding volcano and more. It’s important to think of the learning intention and then the resources, not the other way round. Have a play around with the site before your lesson (you don’t need to know everything about it). This is the activity that the students complete with enabling and extending tasks to differentiate the curriculum. I also use this form to collect more information about the child’s strengths, weaknesses, interests etc. Paper newsletters were time consuming for me to make and often got lost or buried at the bottom of a child’s bag.
