Tech Task 14 (Part 3)

Posted on: November 9, 2008

I revisited and found a presentation called “We Like Our Blogging Buddies: The Write Stuff with Blogging Mentors.”Kathy Cassidy and Patrick Lewis joined forces to do a mentorship program. Patrick’s University of Regina students mentored Kathy’s grade 1/2 class. This video reminded me of my classes current situation. My university class is mentoring with other classes (that are different grade levels, ex. 7, 3, 4, and so forth). The children are excited about blogging. The students are happy to know that there is someone else reading their blog (the university students). By blogging or messaging back and forth, the children become more skilled in proper grammar. In the video, the teacher reviewed the student’s work and used it as research to see if the children were becoming more literate. The children were definitely getting better at writing proper sentences. The video talked about attitude and achievement being hand in hand with one another. Here it is.

The difference between this situation and our own is that we will not be meeting our blog buddies and they don’t really know what we look like. But, we do look forward to talking to our buddies and vice versa. It is a really good experience and I am glad that I had the opportunity to make a difference in someone else’s life.
