This session is designed to provide teachers who are considering using a blog with insight into extending the classroom into the home and even around the world. This session is not a step by step guide through setting up a blog, but such resources will be presented to attendees. Examples of the different ways teachers are using blogs will be shown, and issues surrounding the initial setup and use of blogging in the school setting will be explored. This presentation is an excellent first step for those who want to begin exploring blogging for the classes they teach.
The workshop, Setting Up Your First Blog in The BlogShop, is an excellent companion follow-up session in which Dr. Tyson guides participants through setting up their first blog in a hands-on class.
