The world just got a little smaller. Not literally of course, but figuratively. I just learned about quad blogging. This is when students write and comment on blogs with partner schools throughout the world. Each week, one class wrote a blog while the other classes commented on it.
In this particular scenario, a school in Jacksonville, FL teamed up with international schools in Thailand, Switzerland and Czechoslovakia. Each class would take turns writing a blog and the other classes would leave comments onblooie their peers’ blogs. Not only were the students assessed on their blog writing they were also assessed on the quality of their comments.
What the students discovered was that their writings and their comments showed tremendous growth throughout the process.
I can’t wait to bring this back to my school and share it with my colleagues.
