This morning I ran a technology workshop with Grade 1 parents about the tools that their kids use in their classrooms. We started with the blogs of 1S and 1Y. We talked about what the appropriate ways of commenting are. I reminded them about quality commenting. They did a great job that later on Ms. Saito (1S) came down and said that she had a lot of comments on her blog to approve, she was very surprised to see a lot of parents blogging. After commenting on the blogs, parents created their own accounts on Voicethread. Grade 1′s already started working on their voicethreads on transportation systems. The parents are going to comment on the voicethreads when they are published next week.
It was such a lovely morning!
Thank you for joining me this morning grade 1 parents!
