The library is offering a number of fun and educational March Break activities for families for free over the March Break.
A one week long “Let’s Blog!” camp will run Monday, March 12th to Friday March 16th, from 10am to 4p.m. each day.
A blog, short for web log is a place to publish one’s writing on the Internet. Blogs are created as entries called posts, with writing usually accompanied by photos. They are usually the work of an individual but can also be the work of a small group, and generally are based on a topic or theme.
At this unique camp, young people will learn how to create their own blog for the world to read on the World Wide Web, and will also learn the importance of safety and privacy issues when online.
Research shows that children who have an opportunity to communicate through writing online gain crucial communication skills and that blogs provide an avenue for authentic expression and enhance reading and writing skills.
At “Let’s Blog!” these skills will be practised and honed as campers learn how blogs are created, how to design their own, and how to write interesting posts.
They will also learn how to incorporate photographs and art into their blog pages.
A collective blog for the library will be created as a group project and each participant will also have the opportunity to create a blog of his or her own on a topic of interest.
The Let’s Blog! camp is aimed at children aged 8 to 12 years of age. It will be held from Monday to Friday at the Picton branch from 10 a.m. to4 p.m. There is no cost, but space is limited, so please reserve a space today by email at email@example.com or by calling the library at 613–476–5962.
