I believe it’s important, as educators, to start engaging in blogging ourselves. If we want our students to use it, we need to know how to use it as well: We need to understand its purpose and power as a tool for ourselves first, then see it realized as a classroom tool for students.
Shelley and I have to decided to collaborate on a presentation to teachers regarding the idea of digital leadership within education. If our proposal is accepted, we’ll present our session to teachers within the Peel District School Board this March. Both Shelley and I are interested in using Blogging as the impetus for the discussion.
