Blogging: Links and resources

  • Public
Last updated by Karen Spencer

There are a huge number of amazing education blogs in existence and there are new blogs being created every day by enthusiastic classroom teachers looking to make and maintain connections with the wider world, provide an authentic audience for their students and create a fifth classroom wall to include and involve families in the learning.  

I know that some of these new bloggers are struggling with questions such as what to post, how to involve parents and communities and how to keep their blog not just alive but vibrant.

This page endeavours to give you some places to go, to see great blogs in action and to hear from the bloggers about what keeps them blogging and how they choose what to post.
