Ms. Cassidy Video Chats With Dr. Strange and EDM310 Students
video chat of dr.strange and ms. cassidy
I enjoyed watching the video chat
between Ms. Cassidy and Dr. Strange. I would have really enjoyed witnessing this interaction in person. I think Dr. Strange did a really good job interviewing Ms. Cassidy. He asked some good questions and she gave great responses. I like the idea of giving children the opportunity to blog. This is a good way to get my students involved in technology. I would like for each of my students to establish a blog. I would set up several things we would blog about. I anticipate the benefits would allow my students to share their thoughts without a right or wrong answer. It could encourage parental involvement and teacher student interaction with my students. I do believe that every household may not have internet access or even a computer so that my students may blog from home. In this case I would set a side a day of the week for my children who haven't blogged from home to blog in class or the computer lab. This would allow the students who don't have access to their blog from home, the opportunity to still participate in the blogging assignments. I want to empower my students so that they can be the best that they can be. I believe this technique encourages and leads my students to explore more. The realm of learning is broader than could have ever been imagined. I look forward to introducing different ideas and ways of learning to my students.

Listening to Ms. Cassidy, I realize that this is a journey that I have chosen to embark on so, I need to make the best of it. I am beginning to realize there is a need for encouragement, a need for empowerment, a desire to educate and a desire to share and learn. Dr. Strange and Ms. Cassidy are great assets to my PLN.


  1. Hey LaShunda,

    I am glad that you want to start blogs in your classroom. Where I want to teach, the school system blocks many of the sites such as Blogger. What if your school system won't allow your students to start blogs? Will you continue to be persistent and keep pushing them to allow you? Would you show them your blog? Would you show them this video?

    I am glad that you have seen the value in this post!
