I think it is amazing that Mrs. Cassidy has such young kids blogging and expanding their knowledge of the internet and technology. I think those kids are probably retaining so much more information because it is given to them in a way they are interested in. I believe it is time for some schools in Mobile County to change a little something in the way they are teaching to continue to keep the students interested. I know that kids are learning so much in preschool now that when they get to kindegarten they are bored with the material, because they already know it, and that is when they start to get in trouble.
In the skype interview with Mrs. Cassidy she describes how she keeps her students protected and safe even though they are using the internet. I think that is extremely important and the ways she goes about it is wonderful. If I was a parent, I would have some reservations about letting my 6 or 7 year old use the internet, however, I think that Mrs. Cassidy does a good job of making sure the kid's identities are not out in the open for everyone to see.
I think that, of the techniques used by Mrs. Cassidy, the class website or blog would be the most beneficial. I have decided that I will have one to post homework, accouncements, and any other useful information my students will need. I have enjoyed having our EDM310 class blog and Sakai because I can always keep up with all of my assignments and grades. I hope my students will find the blog as helpful as I have.
