Blog Audit by Mrs. Wiseman

This week Mrs. Wiseman, one of our school support educators, was kind enough to evaluate our blog for Week 10’s challenge. Here’s what she had to say:

1. What were your first impressions of the blog? It looks like a professional blog–not a 3rd grade blog!

2. What captured your attention? She liked being able to read the essays the students published and hear them read aloud on the VoiceThread posts. She liked listening to the Mayflower letters on the “Journey Back in Time” post. She really enjoyed “Dream Jobs” and especially how the students created their own avatars. She also liked the video slide show tour of our school in our post called “Where We Live“. She thinks it should be on our school website as a virtual tour for parents. She couldn’t believe that the students took the photos.

3. What distracted you on the blog? Mrs. Wiseman said the only thing that distracted her was the excitement of all the students who wanted to show her what they had posted to the blog.

4. What suggestions can you give me to improve my blog? Mrs. Wiseman was so kind…she said it was perfect just the way it is.

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.
