Blog Post #11

Little Kids...Big Potential 

In this video Ms. Cassidy’s students show viewers how they can work with wikis, blogs, Skype, and also incorporate their Nintendo DS. Her first graders know so much about technology. It is cool to see that she is teaching her students how to write and publish blogs at such a young age. The title truly fits the video. If I would have learned how to blog at an early age, I would have probably been a blogger. I did not know how to blog until college. Ms. Cassidy is doing so much with her students.

Skype Interview with Ms. Cassidy

Dr. Strange skyping Ms. Cassidy
The Skype interview with Ms. Cassidy answered so many questions for me and also gave some great tips for educators. One great tip she gave is to start developing an online system. I already use websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Symbaloo, and many more. Ms. Cassidy also states how she keeps her students private. She talks about how she does not post their last name or does not post pictures of her students. Blogging is a great way for students to interact with each other. I never knew that kids at this young of an age were blogging. It is so cool to see how much they know about technology. Ms. Cassidy is doing a great job with incorporating technology into her lessons.

  1. Hi Ashley,

    I really enjoyed reading your blog post for the week! I did not see any mistakes besides one; it’s the third to the last sentence. Also I found this blog to be a little short but overall you did an excellent job! Keep up the great work! We are almost done!
