Something to think about

Hey y'all.
I hope that your weekends were fun and enjoyable -- and that you really got thinking about what "Grade 'A'" blogging looks like.
Either just before or just after you get your thoughts on grades online, I'd liek it very much if you'd take a minute to think about this idea that Will has been writing about lately. It's gotten me thinking and I'd like your opinions on it.
Will writes:
And I know not every student was born to be a blogger. But, I would argue that every student, every person was born to be a contributor, whether that's via blog or wiki or podcast or whatever. We need to create a culture of contribution in our schools where our students' work is non only celebrated but put to use in meaningful ways. Don't just e-value-ate what they do but provide ways for what they do to have long lasting value.

He also says (in a different post):
Whether it's wikis or blogs or podcasts of whatever, I think my new clarion call is that educators must start creating content, good content, and that their students should share in that creation. Tom's also right to say that teachers and students need to learn collaboration with each other, and what better way than to share in the creation of and reflection about curriculum. But regardless the purpose, we need to get our teachers on this train...the sooner the better.


I like what he says about your job becoming that of content creator. I also like that he says that we need to learn how to learn together.
What do you think? Is that a way of learning that you like? Creating and contributing as opposed to being told what's important? Is that how it works in lots of schools?
Looking forward to your input.

I cannot comment as to if that is how it works in most schools because I do not work in one yet; however I believe that the students should be part of creating the content by contributing to the class information. I think they should be able to provide input on topics they feel are important instead of being told all the time what is important. I think by doing this the students would naturally become more interested and really want to understand the information. I believe by allowing them to contribute they would need to research and learn the information in such a way that would produce a long lasting learning. And if each student was contributing different information for the same topic and they posted comments on good resource sites, etc. they would be learning how to learn together. I believe this could ultimately boost classroom morale also. A win-win situation!
