Creating a community of Learners
Even though I've read Will Richardson's book Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and other powerful web tools for classrooms at least once, I just picked it up again to dip into, and found this thoughtful idea which is probably obvious, but something I haven't yet done. He says: "...link to the best student posts and ideas in the class blog. This is a very important habit to form. When you celebrate good work or use students' unique ideas to drive further discussion, it goes a long way to creating a community of learners." I have an idea that I will be doing that with my two blogging classes, the Year Eight English class and the Reacreating the Writer class in the next posts on those blogs I write.
