This is part of a series of ‘Best of 2011‘ posts where we share some of the best education-related materials of the past year. Be sure to check back on a regular basis as we’ve got some pretty exciting stuff coming soon!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my 18 months since starting Edudemic, it’s that teachers love to blog and communicate. But what about the students? Students as young as 6 are actively blogging right now. They’re talking about interesting lessons they just took part in, what life in the classroom is like, and basically sharing like never before. Back when I was in school, (many moons ago) there were no blogs or social networks that let me share my ideas and thoughts. I had to stick to communicating with those in my class or, at best, my parents. While I had a wonderfully nurturing education experience, I sincerely envy the students of today. They’re given a chance to explore and interact with fellow students from around the world with little to no effort.
That’s why I am so thrilled to bring you this must-see list of student blogs. Written by students as young as 6 and old as 14, they’ve all got something to say. These student blogs were all nominated during this year’s Edublogs awards so be sure to vote for them if you find one particularly enjoyable. Do you know of a student blog that you’d like to see added to this list? Let us know about it in the comments or on the Edudemic Facebook page!
