Welcome to Modern Educator

Here on this blog I hope to get a conversation going amongst students, teachers, administrators, and parents about who, what, when, why, and where we should teach technology skills for the 21st century. I am technology teacher at Truckee High School in Truckee, CA and currently teach classes like digital media, e-learning, applications, and keyboarding -- yes...still important! :) Please Join the Conversation!

Teaching Blogging

I have just spent the last 2 weeks teaching students about blogging and how they can use blogs to create online communities to start a conversation about a certain topic.  They seem excited about the tool and I am hopeful that it can provide an avenue for me to get my students writing more.  They love to create digital media but seem hesitant when it involves written language.
