Student bloggers… Feel part of a global community, Exhibit a sense of responsibility, Are empowered learners, particularly special needs students. Blogging has given my six and seven-year olds a window to the world. They see themselves as part of a global community --a community that shares ... This international audience gives my students a purpose and they are motivated to do their best writing on their blog. Kathy Cassidy I worried about making my students’ developing language skills available to a wider audience – but I needn't have. They are developing their own voice and with a greater degree of responsibility. Paul Harrington Without a doubt the children that find their voices first and carry the most enthusiasm for blogging are my special needs children . Students who would agonize over a sentence are writing prolifically about their lives. (…the improvements in writing are steadily making their way back to paper and pencil!) Elsie

Feel part of a global community,
