I belong to a support group on Facebook of students who are currently enrolled in EDC3100 – ICT and Pedagogy. This group has been my support, strength and shoulder to cry on over this semester. Karen, a fellow student, has already mentioned a question that another peer had asked on this Facebook group – would we continue to blog after this course had finished. Karen gave a great description of why people chose to blog and stated “after my break I might just find I will continue to blog. You never know? After all there is something to be said for the difference in wanting to and having to be a blogger.” And I couldn’t agree more.
I have enjoyed blogging and I can’t wait to integrate this digital tool into my classroom. I still have so much more I would like to learn and I am going to spend a good chunk of my holidays reading more from the Primary Tech blog that Kathleen Morris has written to help teachers set up a class blog. If you are considering using a blog for you class, then might I suggest having a look over Kathleen’s blog. She has some great ideas about how to start it and tools that you can utilise to be able to do so.
So for me I will keep on blogging my little heart out. I may not write every week, but I will write. I want to document my journey in becoming a teacher so that I can reflect back and look over some of the people who have touched my life during this time.
