Part 2: Commenting on Blogs

We often ask our students to share their thinking and learning with a global audience through blogging, e-portfolios, voicethreads, youtube videos and other media.  How often do we model this practice ourselves?

When anyone makes their thinking and learning visible, it is very encouraging to know that there is an audience paying attention.  We can encourage these learners by taking the time to comment on their work.

Commenting on the work of other educators is always welcome too!

We are building a list of #notabookstudy bloggers here.

Please take some time to read and comment on a blog today. Nurturing and encouraging others to keep sharing ensures that we all have a place to learn.

We encourage you to share with us the links to any blogs that could use more comments in the comments to this post.
