Blogging is becoming not only a hot topic in education, but also a valuable skill in the professional world. How can we get our students blogging effectively and developing skills that will help them begin using technology as a resource? How can we help them if we don't know the first thing about blogging ourselves? This session will give you a blogging tutorial to get you and your students set up and blogging in a way that helps foster collaboration and communication outside of the classroom.
