Welcome to my 10-part online series About Blogging : An Introduction for Teachers. It is based on the course I created and delivered in 2014 and includes the notes and resources I made available to the course attendees. Twice a month I post a section of the course on the web site. At the end of the course, I will make available the PowerPoint presentation including the notes used and various resources for members of the Tech Teachers web site.
Part 8 : Blogging & Your Class/Subject
Think, before you start up your blog, who the audience is going to be. This is important because it will affect many aspects of your site such as what content you are going to place on the blog, how often you will update it, what kind of pages and information will be available etc.
Before you start your blog, identify the target group that the blog is going to be aiming at and establish the purpose of the blog. It’s no good starting up something for your students and you end up writing about your personal struggles as a teacher!
