This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
Blogs can be a great way for teachers to share information about their classrooms. They're also great for reflecting on your practice. But they also have value to students, as well! This session will provide both a step-by-step overview of how to set up a blog using Blogger, with insight into special features that educators need to know about, AND a sharing of ideas and inspiration. Everything you need, basically, to get you and your students blogging.
