Due to the popularity of blogging and its interactve quality, many teachers are joining in. Providing students with the opportunity to be producers of information on the web instead of just being consumers is a powerful teaching tool. Today, I am conducting a training on blogging for the staff of Escobedo MS.
The goal for today’s training is to allow teachers the time to explore edublogs.org and other blogging tools, determine how they see blogs fitting into theri curriculum, and get started blogging!
