    3. 3. EduBlog • An edublog is a blog created for educational purposes. • Edublogs archive and support student and teacher learning by facilitating reflection, questioning by self and others, collaboration and by providing contexts for engaging in higher-order thinking skills (HOTS)
    4. 4. • Blogs can be useful tools for sharing information and tips among co-workers, providing information for students, or keeping in contact with parents. • Common examples include blogs written by or for teachers, blogs maintained for the purpose of classroom instruction. • Educators who blog are called edubloggers.

Educational Benefits •  Gives students the opportunity to communicate and collaborate with people from around the world • Provides a larger audience for student writing • Provides an authentic writing experience Postings can be created any time, any place • Improves student motivation for writing and quality of writing of the classroom
    6. 6. Bloggers BEWARE Tips for Everyone •Do not assume that what you're reading is 100% true. •Never, never, NEVER give your personal information (address, phone number, etc.) out to anyone.
    7. 7. Tips for Teachers •Get permission slips from the parents before you even think of having your students in a blog. •Even with permission, do not identify your students by their last names. •Assume that whatever you post will be read by your students, coworkers, and superiors,
    8. 8. • In the same vein, don't link to something if it's not safe for your students to see. • If you absolutely must rant and complain about your place of employment in a global forum like a blog (bad idea), have an alternate blog under an assumed name and don't mention ANY real names or locations.
    9. 9. Tips for Students •Never, never, NEVER give out your full name or any other personal information (address, phone number, instant message screen name, etc.). •Plagiarism is still wrong. Don't copy more than a paragraph from anything and ALWAYS give credit and a link to the source of the information.
