How Might a Blogsite Work in My Classroom?

The Blogsite, as Possibly Applied to MY Classroom:

Take a couple of hours to see what other teachers have done with blogsites in their own classrooms, and then filter that information through your own understanding of teaching and what will work in your own classroom. The purpose of this blogsite posting is to help you to find best practices by other educators and then to begin to see ways in which you can employ blogs and blogging in your own unique teaching practice according to the individual needs of the school where you teach.

This blogsite posting, coming as it does as the beginning of our class, is an opportunity for you to think WIDE and BIG. As teachers we have almost unlimited creativity in making our lesson plans. So what might you do with this powerful read/write technology?

I suggest getting an early jump on seeing what other teachers are doing with blogs, and then allowing it all to sit in your mind before posting towards the end of the week.

At any rate, this blogsite posting will come due next Monday June 24, 2006 at the beginning of our class meeting. Good luck!
