In January 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 starting a blog or revitalizing a blog, this course is for you. If you have been wondering how you can use Twitter, Google+, and other social networks professionally, then this course is for you too. And if you have tried blogging and social media in the past, but just didn’t get into it, Blogs and Social Media for Teachers and School Leaders is the course for you.
Blogs and Social Media for Teachers and School Leaders is designed to help teachers and school leaders develop an understanding of the many ways they can use blogs and social media (Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and more) to enhance communication between school and home. After learning about how each of the tools works we’ll dive into developing strategies for implementation.
Blogs and Social Media for Teachers and School Leaders is a five week webinar series during which teachers and school administrators will learn the how to choose the best blogging platform for their situations, how to set-up a blog for classroom and school-wide use, and learn about strategies on how to manage blogs in classroom and school-wide settings. Participants will also learn how to avoid the mistakes that often lead to blogging endeavors being abandoned. After establishing blogs we’ll jump into using social networks like Twitter, Google+, and Instagram to reach out to parents, students, and other community members.
Blogs and Social Media for Teachers and School Leaders will meet at 7pm Eastern Time on January 6, 13, 20, 27, and February 3, 2015. All sessions are recorded for participants to watch as many times as they like.
