Teachers Teaching Teachers #39

Conversations among teachers often lead to better clarity, deeper understanding, and renewal, and you’ll find some of these qualities in this podcast. Sometimes teacher talk can lead to action. Such was the case this Wednesday when Lee Baber and Paul Allison invited their colleagues Madeline Brownstone and Sharon Peters to come up with some ideas for collaborating with middle schoolers on blogs in the Personal Learning Space. (Clarence Fisher also joined us late in the webcast.)

Take at look at this week at this week’s Google Notebook TTT 39 if you want to see what all the excitment is about setting up global collaborations between students. Get to know more about Madeline and Sharon in there.

Our plan is to find five themes around which to organize the students’ communication with each other. And instead of coming up with these oursleves, we are going to use James A. Beane’s strategey of asking students to write 10 questions about themselves and 10 questions about the world. Then we will guide our students to study their questions to find socially relevant, personally engaging themes to suggest to each other for creating images, text, flash, and video on the blog. It will be interesting to post 5 questions on the home page of the Personal Learning Space, and then to watch as tags from the students’ blogs begin to give these questions texture.
