In EDM 310 we are assigned a different kid each week. We are supposed to read their blog and leave them a comment. This shows that teachers and students are already using blogs in their classroom. This gives us a sneak peak of what is going on in other classrooms.
I was assigned to Conner E. in Mrs. Gelde's class. The first post I read from Conner was a description of the Superbowl. He described the weather in great detail. He said that Bruno Mars was playing for the halftime show. His opinion was that the Broncos were going to win the Super Bowl. My comment was that it was a great post. It was definitely an exciting game to watch! My favorite part is the commercials. They are always hilarious.
The second blog I read was from Josh in Mrs. Lindsay's fourth and fifth grade classes in Canada. His blog was titled "Why read online this is why". He stated the pros and cons to reading online. Some advice he stated was that you can make notes and highlight on ebook. The cons were to not put a fact online that is not true. My comment to Josh was that he provided great information on why people should read online and why they should not. These tips will become handy for me in the future. Thank you!
The third blog I had to read was BlahBlah. His blog was about Football. It stated how he dreams of becoming a football player. He seemed very determined about his dream. My comment to BlahBlah was I really enjoyed reading your blog post. It is very inspiring that you are so passionate about your dream of playing football. Just do the best you can and you will succeed!
The last blog I read was from Ben W. at 7th grade Bode Middle School St. Joseph, MO. He is in Mrs. Tia. Frahm's class. His blog is titled "Book Project". His blog was about a book project he had done for class. The main objective of the project was to find the main theme of his reading book. He also explained that he used the Keynote app for this project. He provided a link to his Book Project. His book project was on the book "Unstoppable" by Tim Green. The message of the book was no matter what obstacles come in your life there is always a way to overcome those hardships. He chose the perfect book to relay that message through his Keynote presentation. My comment to Ben.W was that I told him our class EDM 310 recently had to do a similar project except we used iMovie. I told him that "Unstoppable" by Tim Green had a very inspiring message. I hope that everyone gets a chance to read that story.
