#4 (WEEK 2) Register your blog

If you’ve made it this far, you already have three items or “things” completed of the ’23 Things.’ I hope you're enjoying the adventure so far and having fun. Remember to share with colleagues any knowledge or experience that may help them out if they get stuck or vice versa!

But how does anyone know where your blog is? Good question! You need to put the URL of your blog into the registration page so I can read your progress on each of the ‘23 things’. Reminder: Clearly identify each WEEK and each exercise (THING) in your entries. So, here’s Thing #4 -- Register your blog - if you already filled in this form but missed out on putting in a blog address, you can email it to me: peter.shanks@skills.tas.gov.au

Remember … your blog address is in the format http://insertname.blogspot.com/It’s really that easy and just think, now there’s only 19 more things to go :)

Curriculum Connections
  1. Idea #1: A blog is an excellent device for home-trainer communications. Daily assignments/homework/special training announcements can be posted on your blog and then your students and/or their parents can “subscribe” to your blog.
  2. Idea #2: A blog is an excellent forum for discussion of issues. Create one to discuss the issues of the day or factors affecting your industry area.
  3. Idea #3: If you set blog posts as an assignment, there's a great rubic you can mark on edtech 296

Thanks for the examples.
It's very interesting to see how other people are using blogs in education.

I blog all the time, and the blog I spend most of my time on is a photography journal. I feel this helps me to embed the new knowledge and skills I am learning in digital photography. You can also use html code and links to insert slideshows of images created in photobucket etc.
