Blogging for Educators

Blogging is an exciting way to share your passions, but fear of the technical side prevents many beginners form getting involved. This introduction to blogging mechanics is designed to show digital novices how easy blogging can be. With blogs, teachers have a professional resource at their fingertips. Students can use blogs to build online portfolios, report on lab projects, or even create digital writing samples. This session will introduce participants to the uses and logistics of starting a classroom blog. Various blogging platforms will be discussed and participants will be given hands-on experience using a great, free Google program called Blogger. We will look at various blogs for ideas, talk, web legalities, and start you on your path to connecting with like-minded colleagues.
