Disney EDUCATION: New Disney show inspires classroom blog
If the Disney Channel is on regularly at your house, you may have seen the new show, “Dog with a Blog.” The show features a dog named Stan who talks, and yes, blogs, about his experience in a blended family.
The show is proving popular with some kids, including students in Karen Vogt’s class at Temecula Luiseno Elementary School. After watching the show at home, Vogt, a teacher who also has expertise in school technology, was inspired to launch a classroom blog for her students. The blog integrates a lot of skills students need in school these days, Vogt said, including writing, keyboarding and technology use. It’s still in its early stages, and isn’t available for reading by the public, but the kids are enjoying it, she said.
Other teachers in the Inland area have used blogs as a way to generate and track classroom discussion on issues, help students learn internet and social media etiquette and more.
