A few weeks ago I went to EdcampNYC. After the event I spent some time talking to Monica Burns (@ClassTechTips), who blogs regularly for Edutopia, which has always been one of favorite websites for all things progressive in education. After conversing with Monica I was inspired to try to get some of my work published as well.
After about ten days and a handful of emails back and forth, my first post on Edutopia was published. The post – “Author Commentary That’s Simply App Smashing” – describes a reading comprehension activity that is enhanced through the use of a few iPad apps. I am most proud of the fact that one of my fourth grade students, Meghan, took the time to contribute a student reflection of the activity, which she wrote on a day’s notice.
Here is a link to the blog post on Edutopia.
