Blog Post 11
Not only does each student in Mrs. Cassidy's classroom use a blog, but they also use their classroom webpage, which helps them find things on the internet. The classroom webpage is available for students to access from home. Mrs. Cassidy also allows her students to use Wiki as a resource in her classroom. Students wanted to know more about traditions of other so they created a wiki page to ask people help them learn more about traditions. Wiki seems to be a good resource to use in the classroom because you can receive feedback from people all over the world. Students can also post videos and watch them on their wiki page. Also, I like Mrs.Cassidy's approach to teaching in the classroom. She gears what she teaches around things that will keep her students interested. The students use skype to talk with people from all over the world and people in familiar classrooms but live in different states. Students are also allowed to use their Nintendo DS games in the classroom. A Nintendo DS is a hand held game that comes in many different colors. Students can access the internet on their DS and they can also play games with other classmates. It is said that playing the DS helps students to become better problem solvers and learn how to share.
