Introduction to Blogging PD with Sue Waters

Blogging PD Notes

This was a half day professional development session with Sue Waters. The driving questions for the beginning of the session were; why should we get our students to blog?

These thought provoking questions were a great way for my learning team and I to begin our journey into blogging as it instantly gave purpose to what we were doing and why we are doing it. Upon reflection, I see a huge value in blogging. I see blogging as having many purposes that will enhance what we do at school. I intend to encourage my students to use their blogs to share / reflect / give feedback / assess / discuss / question theirs and others learning.

Sue taught us a range of useful skills to help get us started with our blogs. I have attached the notes that I took on the day of this session. She gave us a blog link to research how a teacher has set up blogging with their students.
Blogging Bootcamp site (Mr Miller):

This was ideal for narrowing my focus to how I was going to introduce it with my own students. I decided to begin by starting reasonably slow and have more of a structured approach to introducing it in a sequence of lessons beginning with discussing ‘commenting’ and doing it first in an off-line environment; in the classroom on paper.

I am looking forward to beginning blogging with my students yet am a little worried about all of the technical ‘coding’ and ’embedding’ that goes with it. I know I will learn it soon enough though … and am fairly sure that the students will teach me and thing or two as soon as we get started!

What are your initial thoughts about blogging with your students? How have you gone about introducing it with your students?

    YouTube says that the first 15 seconds of your video is considered to be the key. It is the time when you need to grab the attention of your viewers. So, you should delete a lot of the background information from your video intros. buying youtube views

    The pandemic is battering global markets. The global crisis is hurting businesses –but not all companies are losing money.
    With more people working from home, demand for technology that enables online group meetings has grown rapidly over the last two months. Shares in video conferencing company Zoom have risen by 50 percent since February.
    Similarly, demand for TV shows and movies to watch at home has soared.

    It’s cool that you decided to teach your students how to blog. I think this topic is relevant in our time, since all communication has moved to the Internet. By the way, it would not be bad if in the next post you lay out the most important details that you should pay attention to when publishing your first blog. In the meantime, I have to be content with videos of bloggers on YouTube, with tips on how to blog. By the way, such videos usually have about 31 thousand views and I am sure that their authors use to buy views.

    Security guard services or security professionals can pose well as customer service ambassadors. A guard can handle the front desk, and they can even lead the customers to where they need to go. This means they will be interacting with the customers and even employees pretty often. The guards usually can help direct the people towards specific products and help them get to the right location in the business. A guard will also help care for lost children and notify the proper authorities for that as well.
