Critical Inquiry and Collaboration: Training Teachers to Join the Blogosphere

3,141

Published on

These are slides I put together to highlight the ways in which I engage graduate students, most of whom are teachers, to learn about blogging, create blogs, and consider their use in their own teaching. This presentation was created to be used in conjunction with other materials for a presentation at the National Council of Teachers of English Convention for Commission members of the Council of Education Education, focused on "New Literacies, Technology, and Teacher Education." The title for the session is "New Tools or New Practices?: (Re) Inventing the Future of English Classroom Spaces."
