Student blogs


The school world is a dynamic place (our school’s new word for “busy”!!). Things have been so dynamic that I have not been posting on this blog. It doesn’t mean of course that life in the classroom and my students blogs have been in a state of flux! No, quite the contrary! Students have been working busily on their blogs which has been pleasing to observe. Once again, making something relate to their world and, arguably, high stakes has moved most of them from compliance to commitment! What I have really enjoyed has been the opportunity to give feedback on their blog. Last night, I was giving feedback to a student whilst I was at home and he was at his home putting his blog together. I could directly post comments to his latest posts. More on this later, must get to class!! Will seek permission to link student blogs to this one so that their work can be observed.


The “dynamic” teacher!! (not busy!!)


About Kate Pill

I am a Secondary School teacher who is passionate about developing students' ability to answer the "who, what, when, why, how, what if and what next" questions over the course of their learning. A "mature starter" (read as - late!) to the teaching game, I am still developing my IT street smarts. This blog will chart my own journey through the metacognition landscape as I facilitate my students' understanding of not only WHAT they are learning but HOW they are learning it. Wish me luck!
