So, You Want to Start a Classroom Blog . . .

Hosting a classroom blog can be a rewarding experience. All you need is at least one classroom computer for students to use, a little knowledge, and some creativity!

I've set up this blog as a resource for teachers, administrators, and librarians to get started. Just like you'd call your help desk for computer support, this is your very own blog desk for blog support. Hopefully, by working together, we can get you started with a minimal amount of brain overload. Let's face it - teachers have enough to worry about as it is. An educational blog should enhance instruction, provide students with another way of participating in class, and be a parent-portal into your classroom. The great news is that blogs don't take much technical know-how to do! It really is easy and painless!
