I think this is a great activity! Building an app would be a lot of fun but it would be difficult. I think that’s great that students could use the blog to get feedback and help from their peers.
Exactly! Peer feedback and getting a different perspective really can help students get a better understanding of the concepts involved. Especially when building a mobile app!
I like how detailed your rubric is. It covers all necessary criteria from content to requirements. Regarding your activity, that’s a great way to utilize blogs to have them reflect. Hopefully, by their blogs being public, that’ll influence their work ethic since other people can view their progress.
Thanks for pointing that out. I did not think of a public blog journal being used to showcase work ethic in that way. That will be helpful to remember when planning for lesson plans later on.

This is a really cool activity! I love how you have everything broken down by week. And, your rubric is exceptionally detailed!
A couple years ago, when my students were doing Genius Hour projects, they blogged about their journey. My friend’s class in Colorado was doing a similar project, and we exchanged blog links to comment on each other’s blogs. Having an authentic audience was really meaningful for my students, and we (my friend and I) found that our students’ post quality improved knowing other students were going to read our work. Have you considered finding a blogging buddy class?
I have not, but that is a great idea for a project like this. Thanks for the feedback and giving me something to think about.
