i have had the most fun today! The LMS at Monelison Middle School asked me to help her complete an assignment for a graduate course she is taking. She decided to teach a group of 6th graders the basics of blogging. The kids were SO excited!! The plans for these student blogs is to work in conjuction with the English and reading teacher and the LMS. I am looking forward to going back and reading more after the students have a chance to use these in a more formal class assignment. LMS' blog is below and her students' blogs are linked off hers.
_Hi, my name is Melanie Lewis. I am an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher for Amherst County Public Schools,
located in the beautiful state of Virginia. I LOVE my job! I get to
work on my hobby, anything that has to do with computers. I get to work
with teachers and students, and I am definitely a people person. Plus,
I DO NOT have to give grades. Wonderful, huh? Let me know how I can help you better integrate technology into your classroom.
