Lessons Learned from Blogging with Elementary and University Students 

This is a research project class blog along with student blogs  created to explore what happens when 5th graders blog and converse about literacies in class and beyond. The link above on “lessons learned” gives a brief overview. Data is still being transcribed and much more will be reported as the data is examined.

Other blogs and a wiki that were created for other smaller projects, classes or classes, or to chronicle my own learning or to explore other possiblilites:

Note: The server for the blog where some of these blogs were originally hosted has been repurposed. I have transfered them from the manila software to typepad software so some transfers may not have the student names on the posts. Manila is quirky to say the least. Some comments did not transfer but I have tried to copy and paste where possible.The original content remains the same.
