In a few weeks I am again offering my popular series of PracticalEdTech.com webinars about blogs and social media for teachers and school leaders. If you have been thinking about blogging or thinking about joining Twitter or another social network, then this course is for you. If you have tried blogging and social media in the past, but just didn’t get into it, then this course is for you too.
Blogging isn’t new and it isn’t as flashy as say iPads in the classroom, but it is a very valuable activity for students, teachers, and school leaders. In fact, I think that too often it is under-utilized by teachers and school leaders. One cause that under-utilization is due in part to not having a clear strategy for implementation. Another reason for under-utilization of blogs is a lack of understanding of just how many ways blogs can be used by students, teachers, and school leaders. I developed this course to address all of those issues and help teachers and school leaders develop an understanding of the many ways they can use blogs and social media to improve communication between school and home.
Teachers, school administrators, media specialists, and teacher-librarians who:
