    • Why should teachers blog?
    • Teachers have always shared their ideas within their own staffroom, but now teachers’ staffroom chat can be more in-depth, more wide-reaching than ever before. Meanwhile, kids are already discovering the joys of online social networking. How can education take advantage of this to increase motivation for learning and improve the processes we use to teach and learn?
    What is blogging? “ Blogs are powerful communication tools. Blogs are powerful publishing tools. But blogging (the verb) is still much more than that to me. Blogging, as in reading and thinking and reflecting and then writing, is connecting and learning.” Will Richardson How to use blogging? www.learnwithmaggie.ning.com
