A quick look at great technology to make your life easier

Consider a class blog...

Have you ever considered starting a class blog? There are so many ways blogs can be used in a classroom. Are you thinking this is one more thing you don't have time for? Let the students help you with your blog. Blogs can help keep you in touch with parents and give students opportunities to use writing skills without realizing they are working.

How do I get started?

How would I use a blog in my classroom?

  • Share materials, news, links with students and parents.
  • Facilitate online discussions and collaboration--Go beyond the conversation that you had in class and keep the learning going.
  • Stay in touch with parents about what is going on in your classroom.
  • Assign students to blog about what they learned in your class this week.
  • Share pictures of the projects you are working on in class.
  • Post resources students might need when working at home.
