How educators might use blogs

Educators can publish newsletters or updates and allows editing easily. Students can post work and thoughts about lessons. Educators can share lesson plans. Extra curricular activities can use it to keep up with dates times and events.


  1. Hi Ginger - I agree that blogs are an excellent resource for educators and school leaders for all of the reasons you listed above. I like your idea of publishing a newsletter to a blog - I'd much rather get my information that way.
    I'm adding your blog to my blog roll!
    Please visit my blog sometime!

  2. You are added to my list Christa. Thanks for the comment!!

  3. We get classroom newsletters from my boys teachers but it would be great to get a newsletter with information about the whole school. Good idea.

  4. I love the idea of having students comment on particular lessons or topics of discussion on a blog. You could start the topic, or have a responsible student do it, and then watch the comments come in. It is so interesting to hear what resonates with them... often it's not what we think!
