What is a blog and why do I need to know about them?

The word “blog” comes from the words “web – log”, and it is a way of creating an online diary or journal. The benefit of sharing this online (with the world) is that others can not only read what you share, but they have the ability to interact and respond as well (a feature of Web 2.0).

Blogs have not been something I have traditionally followed, but I am quickly realising that nowadays a blog has the ability to connect me with professionals from all corners of the globe who may avoid me trying to “reinvent the wheel” when I am faced with challenges or seeking support as an educator. The creation of a blog is challenging for a newcomer (such as myself!), but I am excited to see where I can take it…..or perhaps, where it can take me!

Happy teaching!
