Having only just started this blog for our new Cloud Educator Programme and I was very interested to read the views of Steve Wheeler, Associate Professor of learning technology in the Faculty of Education at the University of Plymouth. He has a very interesting blog titled Learning with 'e's. In two recent postings he talked about Seven Reasons Teachers Should Blog and Reasons Teachers Don't Blog.
Although most teachers are confident in front of their own pupils and maybe just as confident with staff from their own school, many become shrinking violets when asked to share their work any wider. Working in a school, particularly a small primary school can be quite isolating. One of the amazing things about a blog is you are never quite sure who will read and just what kind of response you will get back. Both of these aspects make blogging a fantastic tool for reflective practitioners.
I am hoping that all of the Norfolk Cloud Educators will produce their own blog about their journey towards becoming a Cloud Educator and in the process help and support other teachers on the way.
