This blog has been developed in conjunction with a year one geography lesson sequence, which requires students to share ideas about natural, managed and constructed areas of places in safe, online environments. The purpose of the blog is to support year one teachers implementing this lesson sequence in locating and establishing an appropriate classroom blog site. This blog will also review established teacher and classroom blogs, and will give year one teachers a snapshot of how they can implement their classroom blog.
The specific curriculum this blog is addressing is:
Digital Technologies: Work with others to create and organise ideas and information using information systems, and share these with known people in safe online environments (ACTDIP006).Participating in safe online environments, for example sharing ideas and information through intranets, messaging only to people they know, bookmarked websites and moderated online spaces.
Geography: The natural, managed and constructed features of places, their location, how they change and how they can be cared for (ACHGK005). Using observations to identify and describe the natural features (for example, hills, rivers, native vegetation), managed features (for example, farms, parks, gardens, plantation forests) and constructed features (for example, roads, buildings) of the local place, and locating them on a map.
