Yesterday I participated in Hamber’s Pro D day. My contribution was a one hour workshop introducing teachers to blogging. I worked off of this page which has my presentation, links to blogging sites & posts, and links to examples of teacher blogs.
Teachers had the opportunity to consider a variety of reasons (and audiences) a teacher may have in mind when blogging such as:
- sharing course information with students
- setting assignments for students
- showing student work to parents & colleagues
- reflecting on their practice
A followup session will be provided in June for teachers who left the session wanting to create their own blog.
