My favorite room was the Protester Room. It was my favorite because it was colorful and my classmates worked the hardest on it.
1. Lively Protest
I was in the room at the time of the protest. I also helped with the background sounds.
2. Digiteen Dream Team Blogpost
Kunjan and I recorded a Save Lively video that we sent to CNN and the NY Times. We posted this video on
the digiteen dream team blog.
3. Woogi World Blogposts
Krysten, Tinsley, Kunjan, and I all did this blog post. We did it to help everyone see that virtual worlds can
be used for educational purposes.
Some measures of effective blogging are posting a lot of blogs and doing them over something that would be interesting to read. You can analyze a blog's rankings by going to Technorati. Yes, this lets us know that the blog was global.
A few ways to build up traffic on your blog is to post a lot of them, to leave comments on other blogs, and to be professional.
I definitely think the effort was worth it. I have learned that kids can make a difference on the internet. I disagree; I think that students should work with Web 2 technologies because it is what we will be using in the future and we need to go ahead and get prepared.
I say I hope it will be half as successful as Lively, and I hope we can branch out on new ways to teach kids digital citizenship on the other worlds.
