There were a couple more Ontario colleagues that were added to the Livebinder and Scoopit collections this past week. These two entries are a little different from the rest of us bloggers. We tend to have a tradtional blog with articles and responses. Both Quentin D’Sousa and Kate Webber have embedded their blog in the rest of their entire rich digital footprint.
Quentin’s latest focus was on the technical connections that he save in the recent CODE document dealing with Parent engagement. Quentin’s resource brings a wide variety of different resources to any who happen by. I’d suggest setting aside a bit of time and just explore all that there is offered here.
Kate has pulled all of the resources for her Grade 3 class together into one wiki. From here, she’s got a single point of entry to all of the things that happen in her class. From a blogging perspective, right up front on the opening page, she’s blogging about daily events in her classroom so that parents are in the know and students can stay on top of things.
Kate was in my summer OTF wikis and Web 2.0 session in London where she obviously did a great deal of planning in the design of this resource for her class. She’s done an amazing job of pulling so much together in one spot. It appears to be a very well thought through example of a blended learning environment. I like the way that each student has their own page and is well on her/his way to creating their own content.
I think it’s so exciting to see the Livebinder and Scoopit curations continue to expand. What would really make me happy would be to have to split the K-12 Teacher section into two to accommodate more links. I’d also like to add to the principal and vice-principal collections! If you’re an Ontario Edublogger or you know of one, please have the form located here completed so that we can enjoy everyone’s efforts.
