Teacher Reboot Camp

“The first thing you need to decide when you build your blog is what you want to accomplish with it, and what it can do if successful.” Goal: Write a post or create a presentation or graphic explaining how blogging has helped you grow as an educator. Share this creation with a teacher who hasn’t yet started blogging. My first blog was posted on May 26, 2009, which was over 7 years ago. Blogging has transformed my teaching in many ways.

Ask a Tech Teacher

Blogging is a popular tool used in education to not only practice writing, but reinforce collaboration, perspective taking, speaking/listening skills, and a lot more.

Why Blog?

A Principal's Reflections

After nearly a year of using Twitter from an educational perspective I had begun to find and read blogs on a daily basis around February 2010. As I became active on Twitter members of my Personal Learning Network (PLN) began to suggest that I start a blog. My mind was set in concrete that I would NEVER under any circumstances begin to blog (wait, I said the same thing about joining Facebook up until 2010). Why do I blog? Finally, I blog to be transparent.

Dear Otto: Can We Eliminate Blogs–Teachers Hate Them!

I was looking for examples of great classroom blog sites – I do marketing for our school and we had set up “classroom” blog pages for the teachers to control and be able to put up information – i.e. links to great sites relevant to their kids, their bio, hot reference sheets (memory work schedule, etc.) –.
