Blogging & Online Publishing in Education

Blogging is a very good way for me to keep documentations of what I do in my classroom (see my class website), a means for me to collaborate with other teachers around the globe (see our Pinoy Teachers Network) and an information portal for our school (see our school website). And that's just some of the benefits I get from blogging; it's what keeping me on the go since I got hooked to it three years ago.

If not for my basic knowledge in blogging, the director of the DC Area Writing Project wouldn't have gotten me for the Technology Liaison position. Since I was appointed as the DCAWP TL, I was sent to technology and writing trainings and conferences of national teacher leaders across the US and to attend the National Writing Project Annual Conventions in different states.

On July 16 & 17, 2006, the District of Columbia Public Schools and the International Reading Association’s Urban Diversity Commission present a conference for literacy educators and policymakers: Literacy 2006: Bridging the Divide.

I am tasked to share my skills, knowledge and expertise in Blogs & Online Publication in Education.

Peace, Maria.
Thanks for an informative presentation on blogging at the Literacy 2006 IRA conference at the Washington Convention Center earlier today. You have grown in both your confidence as a presenter and your thinking is even more organized than past presentations. You were able to involve participants in inquiry, use a recorded interview along with a power point slide show, and a engage participants in a writing activity.
