Blogging a week without walls

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

A great use of a blog from some of our middle school staff and students. Our middles school does a “Week without walls” where they go and visit other cities in Shanghai for the week.

Day 1: China Alive 8 2007 - Tea Plantation, GuilinBefore they left I met with the 8th grade team who set up a blog and each day have the students reflect on what they did and learn that day. The teachers are also taking pictures while on the trip. They upload the pictures to our school’s flickr account and they appear in the sidebar of the blog.

Another teacher has set up a podomatic site and each day does a podcast with the students.

What a great way for other students, parents, and those of us that didn’t get to go on the trip to stay connected.

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.
