What better way to start a blog for my Educational Technology course than by introducing Digital Learning Day?
This exercise in integrating Web 2.0 technologies in the classroom takes place every February 5th. Browse through the website to explore subject-specific lesson plans. I particularly like this lesson plan, which encourages students to maintain a blog and write about “big ideas” both ethically and responsibly. Students are also required to provide feedback on their classmates’ blogs. The process allows students to hone their analytical writing skills while acquiring proper web etiquette and learning how to cultivate a mature web presence.
