Talking Teddies - how to get young children blogging
This is cool. Morag McDonald works in Tighnabruiach, a small village near my home town of Dunoon (she told me recently that some of my best friends from school were in Primary 2 when she started teaching there - a very small world when two bloggers unknown to each other have such ties).
To get her wee boys and girls blogging she has enlisted the help of some colleagues elsewhere in the region, a blog and a pair of teddy bears, here seen videoconferencing for the planning stages of their collaborative blog.
Pupils in the primary schools involved will write for the teddies (well, those paws do get in the way) to tell the teddies' parents in the other primary school what they've been up to. Is this collaborative Talking Teddies blog not a cool very sweet way to get young kids blogging? Do go on and leave some messages for the kids.
