novice blogging

04 Mar

bill ferriter’s blog post today is an interesting response to a reader who asks about starting their own blog. thought it was an interesting read. it doesn’t completely apply to the C&I team, but it does shed some light on concerns teachers might have about using blogs.

    This was an interesting read and gave many suggestions for responses we might give to teachers who are starting off in the world of blogging. We will need to know the right answers to give as we ask the teachers to embark upon this change. The authors suggestions were on the mark.

    The transparency referred to by Bill Ferriter is a topic that’s been on my mind as well. Especially when I googled my name and it brought me right to the “pdscni” blog remarks that I had posted. We do have to keep in mind at all times that the power of interacting digitally demands that we remember that we are posting to a very public arena. I, like Bill, believe that what I post can be read by anyone without fearing judgment and reprisals beacuase I’m aware of the global audience. However, there’s a lesson to be learned from his feeling that he must be “radical yet tempered” to balance the needs of his readership, keep faith with leadership, and keep his job.

    Glad that my bit resonated with y’all….and I agree with @kvanek when he/she says that writers need to be aware of their “global audience” when writing…..That’s a factor many forget.

    Chris Lehmann—principal of the Science Leadership Academy in Philly talks of his private life starting once he walks away from the computer. If we teach teachers to think that way, too, responsible communication is inevitable.

    bill – if this is indeed you (bit of an odd handle “bam bam”) i appreciate you stopping by my blog. the global audience is a powerful deterrent to many would-be bloggers. what is it going to take to get past that fear? seems like the digital community maybe missing out on what some of these people have to add to the conversation.
