* According to their website: The Edublog Awards is a community-based incentive started in 2004 in response to community concerns relating to how schools, districts and educational institutions were blocking access of learner and teacher blog sites for educational purposes. The purpose of the Edublog awards is to promote and demonstrate the educational values of these social media.

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.

    Your blog is amazing! I am just learning how to blog and your blog page is inspirational. I sure hope you won the award for the best blog. Love the video on how to leave a blog comment. I think my students will love to make this part of their blog page as well. I look forward to seeing what else you place on your blog site. Blog on my friends!

    I tried to vote, but I am a month 1/2 too late sorry!
    I am taking a class about Blogging in the Classroom and came across yours. Love your title! That was the first thing that hooked me 🙂
    I haven’t looked through a lot of other posts, but I liked the Show Kindness Everyday one. We are currently reading a book about bullying, “Blubber” by Judy Blume. My class has been having great discussions about how to be kind over being mean. I would like to share your blog post with them to give another disucsion point, and maybe even use as blog practice.
    Thank you.
