Combining Cooking and Technology

This spring, Katherine and I have been running a combined technology and cooking club. We’ve taken the cooking club that teaches children to navigate a recipe and we added technology as a way for them to share what they’re learning.

It’s a pretty big group of kids to manage in the kitchen, so having assigned jobs is a necessity. The are seven students, and we’ve broken the club up into the following jobs: recipe reader, three recipe mixers, videographer, photographer, and two bloggers. As we rotate through the jobs each week, Katherine and I manage different aspects and pick up the eighth job, as needed.

The kids absolutely love being involved with all the aspects of the club. We have been using the KidBlog platform, which has been awesome. They are so proud to write about and publish their experiences. It’s amazing to find a way to inspire the writers and cooks within them.
