Blog Post 12

Why Teachers Should Blog
Visit "teachpaperless" and write a summary of the reaction you had to reading this post. Do you agree or disagree? Explain why or why not.

In this blog, a teacher writes that other teachers should keep blogs not just for keeping up with technology but also as a way of teaching themselves how they feel. The writer explains that writing what you actually feel teaches you as well as allows other teachers or professors to comment and give you an insight into how others think. The writer also states that teachers are the mediums for information and by keeping a blog it makes the teacher more well rounded. I completely agree, even if the blog isn't about learning more about technology, it could be about expressing your thoughts and getting feedback from other teachers.


  1. Kayla,

    This was a great blog to read, and I also agree that it is important to write and get feedback. I think this would be a great thing for all teachers to do, and I am sure you have greatly benefited from Comments for Teachers. Not only are we self-reflecting about what we are doing, but we are also inspiring and teaching others, while at the same time getting feedback and ideas from other educators.

  2. Kayla,
    I really liked this blog, I agree with the message that the teacher is putting out there. I think that blogging is important just to put what is happening to you out there, if for no other reason that to get it off your chest. But, I think that more often than not we will find that someone else has gone through the same situation and be helpful, either with advice or sympathy. And sometimes that is all we want.
