“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.” – Ron Dawson
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. Blogging has helped me collect valuable web tools and apps, brainstorm how I could use these tools, have conversations with teachers worldwide, collaborate with teachers, and start edumovements. Blogging has helped me reflect on my teaching practice and reflect on how my students learn. I believe every teacher should blog or journal about their teaching practice. In my recent interview with teacher and new blogger, Andrea Ullrich, we talk about the 5 reasons she began blogging. Click to listen.
