This year, a Blogging Project was undertaken in conjunction with a group of junior teachers from our board and teacher candidates from Brock University. The goal of the project was to use the Kidblog blogging platform to give descriptive feedback to help improve the reading and writing of our students. Teachers and teacher candidates worked together to create assignments according to learning goals and success criteria. Descriptive feedback was given which was then used by students to improve their work. Student feedback indicated that they were engaged using the technology and that the feedback helped them to improve their work.
