I was assigned to Samson's Blog. Samson is a student at Pt. England in New Zealand. He is a year 7 student. When I visited this blog I noticed there is only one post here. It simply stated, in one sentence, who he was and what class he was in. It was posted last week. I am not sure if they just started these blogs, but I commented asking Samson why his posts were not more frequent. I wanted to know this to know how students feel about blogging and what may hold them back.
I was assigned to Ms. Jenny She. Unfortunately I was late posting my comment for the first time. I did not have a number by my name to count down, but I just read the most recent post and posted on it. It was a video made by Lomio-Lee. He is a student in ms. Jenny She's class. This is the way she uses her blog. She had a student make a video every week about what they did during the weekend. Lomio Lee went to a rugby game and really enjoyed it.
I read a blog made by Year 4/5 students in Taurange, N.Z. I really like how interactive the class has made this blog. There are things to watch, read, and listen to. The post I was assigned to was a type of powerpoint that focused on what respect was and what it looked like in practice. I really like the way this is used. I think that this is a great opportunity to teach character education in a unique way.
