The purpose of this project is to introduce 6th-8th grade students to using a blog. They will learn how to set up a blog, post information and other forms of media to the blog, and reflect on their learning. They will add posts to their blogs throughout the school year to create a digital portfolio with assignments and reflections.
Technology is changing how we do just about everything. Students today need to know more than what's in a textbook. They need to be able to think critically and creatively. Technology can help build students awareness of how they can use technology in college as well as in the workforce. My 7th and 8th grade students are motivated to use technology to learn and I want to capitalize on that by creating engaging lessons and projects.
