Specifically, I have been teaching students how to use blogs, photoshop, and video editing. I also teach them digital citizenship, the evolution from print to web, and search engine optimization.
I was asked by the prominent educational website Edutopia (funded by the movie mogul George Lucas of Star Wars) to write an article on using student blogs to help English Language Learners cross the Digital Divide. You can read the article by clicking here.
My class was also featured on TV (see below video) and our work was written about in several different publications, including Education News and Converge Magazine.If you have any interest in checking any of this work out, please visit my site at www.kidslikeblogs.org. My next project involves using billfish and marine science to teach my students the science, math, and writing.
