Workshop Wednesdays: Using Blogging in the Classroom

Facebook Live workshops to help teachers use more technology in their classrooms

Ready to up your game when it comes to motivating your student writers?

Well - I might just have your ticket to success.  You ready for it?

Student. Blogging. 

Having your students blog on a weekly basis is a GREAT way to motivate your writers (especially the reluctant ones!) and teach them 21st century writing skills.

You might be thinking - "I'm technologically challenged - there's NO WAY I'll be able to teach my students how to set up a blog, let alone how to write on one!"

Well - I'm gonna stop you right there, because for you, my teacher friend, I have a FREE workshop that I'd like you to watch.

Each week I'm tackling a new technology tool for either teachers OR students.  I'm walking you through EXACTLY how to use it and how it could make your teacher life easier and have a bigger impact on your students' learning.
