Kaye Trammell has been doing what I’ve been doing in my journalism classes in terms of having kids follow a beat in their blogs. She posts some feedback from her students about the exercise here. Even though the results of her end of the semester survey shows some mixed results, some of her classroom bloggers will be continuing their blogging careers with the local Gainsville paper. How cool is that? I have to say that I am more and more impressed with the work my kids are doing. Funny thing is that I ask them to do more posts than Kaye asks of her college kids, although it looks like her students go into a bit more depth. Still, Suzan and Justin and Mandie are doing some awesome work, I think. They make me hope that other students would get into writing about stuff they are interested in. And that’s really what it’s all about…words on digital paper.
