Writing like the post that we’ve copied here makes it easy to listen to what our students think about our work with them. Here’s what a 9th grader in Chris Sloan’s class thinks about blogging at YouthVoices.net:

What makes a good blog post, by Parker at Judge Memorial High School, Salt Lake City

To create a really good blog post, I really think that people need to open up to the readers. Honesty is most effective, because the actual emotion that others put down is probably something that others have experienced, or can relate to. For example, i just read a letter a girl wrote to her father, but he passed away four years ago. It was the most personal, morose, true example of sadness that i have ever read, let alone on youthvoices. I don’t know anything like that personally, but the raw openness made it something that i felt, not just read. I’ve also published some poems on the site, and i’ve gotten some varied, but positive, responses to those, and that’s encouraging.   more below

In this podcast, we take some time to talk to a colleague from São Paulo, Brazil. Since 1997 Barbara Dieu has been using the Internet to connect her students with peers from different parts of the globe. Last year she was one of the first to volunteer her students to connect with Lee Baber’s students on the PersonalLearningSpace.com that had just been launched by Dave Cormier of World Bridges.

Recently, Bee has been teaching English as a foreign language to high school students preparing for the French baccalauréat at the Lycée Pasteur, the Franco-Brazilian school in São Paulo, where she also coordinates the Foreign Language Department and belongs to the ICT committee. At the beginning April 2005, Bee was invited to serve on the Tesol Advisory Committee (TAC), she became a judge for the GSN Cyber Fair Contest , and she collaborates in and co-runs Dekita.org. Barbara is presently leading the Blogstreams Salon at Tappedin and she has just opened the Braz-Tesol EduTech SIG.

We were glad that she fit us into her busy life. And we look forward to further collaborations. Thanks Bee!
