Blog Post #11

There are no other words to describe First Graders in Ms. Cassidy's Class but simply amazing. It is so cool to see first graders having blogs, doing videos and using Skype. I thought that it was so cute when the little boy said, "Commenty by only saying nice stuff because you may hurt someone's feelings. I do agree! The Skype Interview with Ms. Cassiday was GREAT! She gave some very helpful advice. I think that is so wonderful that she exposing her students to technology at a young age. The advice that she gave about Twitter and Facebook was very good. Before I took EDM 310 I did not think that Twitter was a needy tool to have, but now I see the value of having Twitter. The suggestion that she made about students having a school Facebook is a wonderful idea. As a matter of fact, I am thinking about doing this when I become a teacher. I also like the idea of students having blogs. I also think that it is no more than right for parents to sign a form in order to allow their children to have blogs. Thanks Mrs. Cassidy for sharing such great ideas!

  1. These kids really are amazing. We really don't know how much students can do unless we let them try. Most students will really excel if they are given the chance. Twitter really is a great place to get quality answers from real professionals. I use twitter for science info, and for teaching information.
