So my excitement continues as I build my blog and my PLN. I created a Google Reader and am currently following three sites:
I will definitely find these useful when creating lesson plans for next year and I hope that my fellow science colleagues will find them useful as well.
I enjoyed reading about the commenting tips. What I found most useful was how to invite more people to comment on your blog such as asking questions and asking for feedback. It was also a good reminder to remain humble and gracious when blogging/commenting. Besides Facebook (which I keep pretty conservative and low-key), I haven't had the opportunity to share my thoughts publicly. I find it exciting because I know that I will learn so much from networking with others. Blogging is definitely different from sharing my successes and challenges with a teammate. It is reassuring when you can relate to others so building this network will be very beneficial.
A website that I plan to visit in the future is http://learningismessy.com/blog/. The blogger presents some controversial issues regarding today's education and a different approach on pedagogy.
What I think of blogging so far....It's not as hard as these boys think!!
