I have found assignment 6 very useful and after reading 7 things to know about blogs, I thought of some ways that blogs could be used by educators. I spend a lot of time visiting educational blogs through out the day. Most are maintained by teachers and are great tools for fellow peers. The educational blogs I visit come with great advice and tips about teaching and lots of freebies/printable’s to use in your classroom. A blog that I find very useful is Mrs. Riccas Kindergarten.
After this assignment, I plan on starting a blog for my classroom. It would be great if parents would follow me by checking the site everyday or by RSS feed. I can use it to keep parents informed on school projects and classroom activities. Edublogs has an article about using their web site for just an occasion. Click Here
