How Educational Leaders Might Use Blogs

   Blogging makes communication interactive with discussions, feedback, and collaborating with others.  What a great way for educational leaders to help others learn!  History teachers could set up a blog for students to read about an important event that took place on that day in history.  These events could be archived and as the lists grow, teachers could have trivia questions that students could give feedback on.  Teachers could use blogs to post an assignment that would require some type of writing feedback, like using vocabulary words to fill in the blanks on a particular story or to give an opinion on a particular current event.  School leaders could use blogs to keep the school community updated with relevant information concerning their schools, like bond issues, school closings or current events.  The ways that educational leaders can use blogs is endless.  They can keep us informed and in touch!
