I have seen this video before, but recently was reminded of it at a seminar led by Stephanie Krajicek, a wonderful educational technology expert who runs a very informative and well-organized blog called Education Ad Infinitum. After attending her seminar, I have been inspired to do more blogging with my students next year. I'm going to start with a small group of seniors, and see how smoothly everything runs. If it goes well, I'll have the rest of my classes blogging the following year (or maybe even after Christmas break). Here's to high hopes! I highly recommend watching this video, and then visiting her website for a ton of useful information. Click on the "Seminar Handbook" link to access a PDF file of her resources.
