Anne Davis points to a great quote by one of her students about the possibilites she sees for the use of weblogs in the classroom.
I particualarry like her comment about PowerPoint...! :-)
I am so excited about learning about blogs and how to use them in my classroom, particularly as I was not very familiar with them before now. Everything we discussed in class today seems universally applicable to most classroom situations. This is very refreshing because most people just say to use PowerPoint to meet county mandates about incorporating technology into the curriculum. As we have already established, I hate PowerPoint. I can't wait to apply ideas such as publishing students' work, communicating with parents, and communicating with other classes by using blogs into my own classroom. This is all very intriguing and I want to learn more.
