Teacher Blogs: All for One and One for All
Since joining the blogosphere, one of the benefits of social media for me has been discovering all of the great resources outstanding educators are willing to share on the web. I am able to use these ideas, resources, and bits of wisdom as well as pass them on to my current and former students. Master teachers know the value and benefits of collaboration. We are not in this alone.
While I have known a few teachers who guarded their lesson plans and resources, never offering to share, most of my colleagues are more than happy to share plans, activities, resources, and ideas. To me it is the utmost compliment when someone asks for a copy of my lesson or teaching resource.
As part of my blog planning and preparation I have viewed several educators’ blogs, and now that I am receiving feedback and comments from other bloggers, I am “following” several outstanding teachers. I sign up for email, Twitter, or Facebook notifications.
This week I thought I would share a few of my favorite blogs and posts. I hope you find them useful.
