[TIPS] follow these third graders

http://www.halcyon.com/arborhts/mahlness/index.htm

I always point to Mark Ahlness' class blog when showing student blogs. Mark teaches third graders. And I ALWYS tell this story: http://tipline.blogspot.com/2007/05/tips-third-grade-tech-problem-solvers-i.html. It never fails to get the jaws dropping.

Mark's class is just now getting started with their own blogs. Yes, Viginia, there ARE schools where blogs are actually ENCOURAGED instead of being blocked. If you don't follow this blog, and occassionally check in on what his third graders are writing about, then I recommend that you begin. Actual student blogs. What a concept, eh? ;-)
