Hello, who are you?

It's time to start blogging and connecting!

It’s time to start blogging and connecting!

It’s time for us to start participating in biannual Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge. During this challenge you will learn all about blogging and connect with other classes all over the world. Start by reading Week 1’s post by Miss W.  Next, do Activity 1 and 2 by yourself.  In Activity 1 you’ll think about your online identity and your real life identities–write down a few things.  In Activity 2 you’ll get to create your own avatar. (Try these sites to make an avatar.) You can upload your avatar to your Edublogs Profile once you have an account. Don’t worry about Activity 3. We’ll do that as a class.

And, don’t forget to visit some of the other classes who are participating in the challenge. You can find a list of them here…start with the classes just above and below our class blog. Have fun! And, can’t wait to see your avatars.

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.
