Blogging Resources


Blogs can be used for lots of different things. We'll explore the use of blogs for Professional development, for student literacy development, and educational leadership. Blogs are characterized by ease of publication and a web feed that permits subscription, so people can PULL information instead of having it PUSHED to them.


The collaborative Blog Tools Wiki includes many links to blog examples and different blog tools. The July 2006 skypecast on blogging tool options also includes many links in the shownotes.
