    Cheryl –
    Thanks for the positive feedback on the presentation. I enjoyed doing it, and I hope others might see something that appeals to them as a beginner to jump in and give it a shot.

    Sarah – Nice succinct presentation. I love the whole way you walk us through the process. This is a terrific way to share information about digital portfolios – the pluses and minuses – all great suggestions. Also love that your work influenced your principal! How great! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Deborah Barrows

    Thank you Sarah for creating this great overview of your project. This should be very helpful for teachers who want to replicate what you did. The kids sure are lucky to have you for a teacher! I wish I was one!

    Thank you for sharing all your resources. I am familiar with Edublog while I too understand the need for advertisement was looking for an option without ads. I have attempted class blogs but the tool was cumbersome and the interface not user friendly. It sounds like Youth Voices is a viable web 2.0 tool. Thanks again for sharing.
