Tool #2

I was able to view some different blogs from the list provided, other teachers at Northbrook HS, and previous blogs I have found interesting. I added a few that I enjoyed to my blog under Blogs I love, so I could come back to them at a later date. That particular gadget shows you the title of the most recent post from each blog, so you can quickly see if you want to read that post.

I like the idea of having a PLN because you can learn so much from those that you work with on a daily basis and others around the country and world who are using innovative ideas in their classrooms. I love commenting on other people's blogs and sharing thoughts on their ideas. The list of commenting tips helped a lot when considering how you pose questions in each post and how you structure your blog. I enjoy sharing my thoughts with my network on my personal blog, and I think it will be useful and helpful as I improve my classroom practices and usage of technology in my classroom. One thing to remember when posting online versus talking to coworkers is that once it is posted anyone in the world has access to it. We must be very careful what we say on our blogs/comments.

One blog that I will visit again in the future is . I enjoyed reading their posts because they presented some information about education today. Much of what they said was and is controversial and it allows you to read different viewpoints on where education is going and how it needs to change.

  1. I think it is always interesting to see what others are doing in their classrooms. With everything being done online now it is so much easier to share and get ideas.
