  • A good teacher never makes excuses. A good teacher always makes the best of a situation. A good teacher pursues excellence. I will be excellent as I learn from NECC.The same teachers and technology administrators who learn from NECC virtually are probably also the same ones that teach incredible things on older technology. "Excuse" is not in our vocabulary. "Do it," is.

Why i blog
Why I Blog

  • Recording my learning

  • The power of reflection

  • Sharing my learning


Blogging as learning
Blogging as Learning

  • Modeling: the teacher “puts his/her mind on display”

  • Coaching: teachers observe students performance of a task, offering feedback

  • Scaffolding: helping a student complete a task slightly more difficult than the student is capable of completing on his/her own.

  • Articulating: drawing students out dialogically, helping to convert tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge

  • Reflecting: debriefing, replaying and discussion after an activity

  • Exploring: students tackle new areas on their own

  • Weblogs are a personal writing space. Easy, sharable, automatically archived.

  • Weblogs are easily linked and cross-linked to form learning communities. The school logs projects are examples. The school logs also enable a teacher to evaluate a student’s thinking, by reading explanations and assignments.

  • Weblogs can become digital portfolios of students’ assignments and achievements.

  • Weblogs are a novice’s web authoring tool.

  • Accumulated weblogs become a content management system.

  • Via digital storytelling, weblogs play a role in professional development.

Students Caring About Work

  • “You took the blog down,” he said. “You can’t do that.” “You have to put it back up,” he said.

  • “Can’t we take our old posts with us?”

  • “It seems awfully quiet without our other stuff.”

  • “I’m proud of my comments. Do I have to leave them behind?”

  • “No one will know what who we are and what we’ve done!”

  • “What about the old posts?”

Blogs vs wikis
Blogs vs. Wikis

Web logs are great vehicles for an interactive exchange of ideas between a handful of people, but blogs are not as effective when a large number of people want to collaborate, contribute, and easily find information on a given topic. That's when you need a wiki.

-Tim Stahmer


What is a wiki
