I’d forgotten how much I really like the feel of Lloyd’s Web log and the way he honors his students by excerpting them into his own space. He’s really done some exceptional work with kids, and I’m really impressed with how many of them have stuck with it, most likely due in large part to his continued interest.
Quote: “And that agenda was, simply: I wanted kids to write, to express themselves, on the web. To become part of a loose online community of writers and thinkers, making self-expression in this medium a regular part of their lives. And it has succeeded, to what I think is a remarkable extent; just look at the long texts and grads lists on the left there. I would have been quite happy to have had a dozen students who would become regular webloggers and writers over the years; instead, there are a few dozen.”
A best teaching practice if ever there was one.
