This is exactly why I blog.When I first started blogging almost a year ago, I was unsure of what exactly my key focus for blogging was. As I continued to grow and develop I realized that it should be used to connect a community of learners. Share ideas with educators, students, parents, and teachers. School is much more than a 8-3 job and should be treated that way. This can be reached through the use of technology inside and outside of the classroom.
This past week I have fallen under great criticism for my use of technology in my classroom and have really become discourage about the whole ordeal. However, after having such a visual as I do at the top of the page and hearing the positive feedback from my student's parents.....it is very clear to me there is a market for educational blogging and it really does help build a stronger community of learners.
