I was recently invited to speak to Mrs. Holden’s Class where they had their “Blog Launch Party“.  I spoke to them for a few minutes about my journey into blogging and the impact it has had on my learning and the opportunities that it has created.  It has been amazing what I have learned in the last four years through the process and I was honoured to share it with the class.
    What happened after I talked to them was that all of the students commented on to each other’s blogs and they all learned from each other in the process.  It was a great way to get them excited and then rolling into the project.  Such a great idea (again) from Mrs. Holden’s class.
    We even talked about my visit to the St. Louis Zoo since their class connected with them this year, so we sent them this selfie:

    Within minutes, the St. Louis Zoo, responded back and sent them a message from one of their friends:

    @gcouros Hi, everyone! Have a great day and come visit us soon! pic.twitter.com/C1SlJhh7xm

    It was a great activity and a great opportunity to learn from and with a class.  Thanks Mrs. Holden’s class for a great afternoon!
