Hopefully I am able to learn from as well as help many more people to come and increase my following and followers in the future. If you would like to follow me on Twitter I am @teaganchilds.




Writing effective and engaging blog posts

After becoming aware of this wonderful Blog (Edublogs Teacher Challenges) I felt it needed a whole post dedicated to it. What an amazing resource for all teachers to benefit from!

It is a Blog series that is focused on helping educators set up their own personal / professional educator blogs.  It also has the other option of Blogging with Students if you want to work through their series designed to help you set up student and class blogs!

Edublog is designed to increase your skills while providing mentors who’ll support your learning. Have fun and the opportunity to ask for help, by leaving a comment, any time you need assistance!

This is definitely one resource I want to remember when I finally become a teacher and am trying to integrate ICTs into my teaching.
