In this episode, I explain why blogging is an important tool for modern educators as well as give a brief "how to" when getting started with a blog.
Links referenced in episode:
What you choose to write about is up to you, but some ideas could be:
Best practice from your classroom- this is a great time to draw on personal experience
An idea or technique you’d like to try- get your thoughts down on how this new idea or technique could be used
Book review- read something interesting related to education, share your reflections and actionable items with others, you’ll find that others will share their recommendations with you!
Experience from a conference- bringing others along virtually helps to share your professional learning and can help to solidify what you yourself learned.
The three part comment principle:
Be positive- start with a compliment
Build connection- draw a parallel from your own life or experience to the post
Ask a question, this helps to further the conversation instead of ending it.
I hope that you are feeling inspired to get that blog going! Once you’ve posted that first post, I’d love to read it!
