The thing that struck me in my reflections was just how many different platforms are available to teachers and students who are interested in blogging. While the reading highlighted basic blogging on blogging websites, there are so many different tools that highlight many different learning styles. Traditional blogging platforms are still available and effective. However, there are many different types of platforms for micro-blogging. Micro-blogs are blogs that can be read quickly. Students and teachers can explore Twitter, Snapchat, and even Pic-Collage to blog out their world. My good friend Ann Kozma just published a blog highlighting how she used Pic Collage Kids to blog her ISTE 2017 experience. Here is her blog post. It is a great read! Sketchnoting can also be used as a blogging tool! If you are looking for an amazing sketchnoting resource, follow Karen Bosch on Twitter! She is amazing!
I am so excited to dive into all these resources this summer! Self-Reflection is such an important part of life and teaching and we are lucky to engage with a world that is filled with so many dynamic and diverse tools!
Happy Blogging and Stay Tuned,
