Last semester I used Blogger for students to post all their assignments and have discussions! Suprisingly, despite being millennial learners, few of them had ever had a blog. They loved it!
Here is a link to one of my students' blogs
For my final, I had students construct a portfolio with Google Sites. They had to chose one of the 10 projects we did throughout the semester and decide which one best met each ISTE standard. I had them reflect on how that activity helped them to think about using technology with their future students. Here is a link to one of these technology portfolios.
I'm looking for examples of online book clubs for adolescents. Is anyone using Second LIfe, Skype, or Blogging to form book clubs between students who are different time zones? How do you manage it? What are the challenges?
