RCET is excited to welcome second graders from West Main Elementary to the AT&T Classroom. The class will begin each morning by logging in to their online community in Edmodo. The Edmodo platform is a Web 2.0 tool that allows a teacher and students to communicate and collaborate online, share content, access homework and assignments and participate in online discussions in a safe environment. The second graders are using their Edmodo community has a blog space where they can reply to writing prompts posted by Mrs.Frabotta. The term Blog is short for Web Log and refers to an online space where a user can share information by posting text, images, audio, or video. Providing opportunities for students to “blog” allows children to further develop their literacy skills while also providing them with authentic writing experiences. This morning Mrs. Frabotta posted the following writing prompt to the students: What are you most excited to do in the AT&T Classroom? After individually drafting their posts, the students came back together as a class and shared their writing projected on the Apple TV and presentation screen.
