Many countries celebrate International Women's Day on March 8th. This year, we'd like to encourage the whole edublogging community to celebrate the women edubloggers in their lives - friends, mothers, sisters, daughters, online colleagues and co-workers. Please join in the party on this special day with at least one post about women who edublog. It might be a profile, interview, overview of their blog - or just a round up link-fest of all your favourite women edubloggers. So if you have benefited from the contribution of women who blog in, around or about education (and let's face it - who hasn't?), please take part in the women edubloggers blog extravaganza!What a great idea.
My profile is of Bronwyn. I first met Bronwyn on Clarence Fisher's blog in Canada. I followed some of her work and found her commenting on students' blogs all over the world. She is an appreciative audience for these student writers and encourages them to think and to clarify their posts. My Year Eight bloggers just set up their blogs and made one post each, then they went off for a week of other activities. Bronwyn has commented on all of their blogs. One parent of a student valued what Bronwyn said about her child's writing and got in touch with Bronwyn. I am very impressed with the impact of blogging, commenting and the power of an audience. I can't wait for my students to come back and see what happens next. Good on you both, Bronwyn and Josie.
