Pie Corbett share his thoughts on QuadBlogging and the impact it has had on Literacy:
To date, QuadBlogging has seen 150,000 pupils taking part from 5000 classes in 40 countries. Each round see more and more pupils and teachers engage in this movement. From humble beginnings with just 4 schools, QuadBlogging has become a project that is supporting pupils across the globe.
“My class and I just started QuadBlogging in January. I learned about it in the fall and immediately went and registered to be a part of the Spring blogging.
This has been an amazing experience for my students. Living in a rural area of Texas, with lots of cows around us, my students are learning about people who live in Dallas, Texas and a school in England. This is a whole new culture for them and it has given us great conversation in class. We have been able to discuss all types of things like what goes on in these areas to social skills with blogging, what is appropriate and not appropriate to post. This is my students first experience with blogging, and it has been neat to see them experience what blogging is really about. That it is more than linking to your favorite YouTube video. Thanks for all your hard work with putting this together, I look forward to doing this as long as I can!”

“The school’s ‘linking school project’ maintains close links with a school in inner-city Bradford so pupils acquire meaningful understanding of diversity. This is magnified through the school’s ‘quadblogging’ and its link with Jamaica.”
