Benefits of Blogs for Teachers

There are many teachers who regularly read and write blogs, however, there are many who do not.  I thought I would break down the benefits of both reading and writing blogs to encourage more teachers to share.

Writing your first blog can be daunting, here are some tips to get started:

  • Start by reading a few blogs on topics which interest you
  • Make comments on the blogs to build your confidence.
  • Start to plan your first blog post. Do this in a document first as you plan and process your ideas.

Some ideas:
  • Something you are doing in class
  • An event
  • Useful resource or website you have found and like
  • A unit of work which was successful
  • An event at your school
  • Something you have recently learnt

Here is my interpretation of the benefits of blogs for teachers.
