Last fall, PCG Education’s Greg Nadeau gave a talk at TEDx Beacon Street to kick off a grass roots campaign to encourage families to help kids personalize learning by setting up a lifelong learning blog.
Getting kids to blog their school work, home work, and out-of-school work to a team of trusted adults (parents, grandparents, teachers, special family friends) “creates a 100-500 fold improvement in one of the core, most important cycles of learning: writing and reflecting with others.”
You can watch the 11 minute video here. If you like it, add a comment, and forward the video link to others who you think might appreciate it as well. If you think the idea makes sense, show it to your child and have a discussion about written expression in the digital world they are entering.
