Administrative Implications
Start a principal blog with posts for teachers, students, and/or parents. Use it to share resources or relevant information with stakeholders. Blogs can be embedded on your school web page so you can quickly share news and information with others.



Classroom Implications

Teachers can use blogging for reflections or to share resources with others. It can also be used with students to encourage participation in discussions.
