Long gone are the days when receiving a notification from social media was exciting, especially that little red number on FacebookIt seems like day after day, no matter what happens in your real life, Facebook notifications stay the same.
Wow… what a fast and furious end to September as the #ukedchat masses discussed all things bloggery!
There are a number of key #ukedchat contributors who have long advocated blogging as a tool for good. In this week’s discussion, they had a chance to convert the rest of us… and believe me, I think it worked!

The doubters (of which I suppose I was one, having not really yet embraced blogging as a class tool…) were very quickly silenced as more and more educators tweeted about the positive impact blogging has had.
I can honestly say that this week’s #ukedchat discussion has given me so much inspiration. In fact, I’m now working on a plan to change my KS3 writers club into a blogging club!
