Ok, it’s official, my head just exploded. Following an #edchat on Twitter will do that to you!
One of the great things about having a broad and dynamic Professional Learning Network is that, just when you feel like it’s all a bit too hard, something comes along and stokes the fires again.
Tonight I was participating in the #aussieED Twitter EdChat about the benefits of blogging both for students and for teachers. Some great individuals (@MRsalakas, @ZeinaChalich, just to name a few!) have shared their thoughts on what makes a good blog and how educators can use blogging to amplify the voices of ourselves and our students.
What I also found inspiring was the simple suggestions of everyday teachers from around the world on how we can better leverage blogging as a learning opportunity.
