Stuart Glogoff of the University of Arizona sent along this link to Alaskablog, a really beautiful and effective class Weblog project that was done this spring. It was done by one of his former students who he had taught using, you guessed it, Weblogs. Very cool!
Alaskablog is created to foster conversations between students, theater arts, and the community.
At Alaskablog 8th grade students at Colony Middle School will engage in conversations with Valley Performing Arts cast and crew to discover the timeless nature of Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men. Throughout our conversations we will be considering the question:
“Does Lenny Small have a place in our twenty-first century?”
In addition, Stuart has some great blogging links at his Learning and Technologies Center. Worth noting is the list of “community building” Weblogs that has some great ideas for using the technology to connect cultures and ideas.
