Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started)

Why Great Teachers Blog (and How You Can Get Started) | Learning Development | Scoop.it
For great educators, teaching is a calling more than an occupation. That’s why educators spend so much of their time not only teaching in and beyond the classroom, but also constantly learning themselves, exploring every avenue that can make them more effective (like using Twitter for professional development).


So why would they take the time to blog at all, much less regularly? And is it something every educator should consider? To find out, we asked six Milken Educators with regular blogs on different topics to share their insights. What we learned was that there is no one reason to blog, but myriad reasons and benefits for doing so.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, November 11, 8:13 PM

I owe my start in online teaching and learning to the Milken Family Foundation.  Back in '95 I became a Milken National Educator.  The world changed. My access to information and ideas grew and my teaching spirit soared.  The MFF is still doing the good work!
