Quadblogging -why Jen, why?

Well, it’s for our VIT registration! But really, it’s about more! Jen tells us it’s “good for you”!

Really?  What do we really think about Quadblogging? Are we game to write what we think? Afterall, Jen will be reading this…that I know for sure! Is it a pain in the butt, just something extra, or should we be embracing it?  C’mon my quadblogging team, tell me what you think!

We really do need to be engaged in our professional conversations about learning and teaching.  I know that’s where I get my best ideas!  Talking to my colleagues, asking them questions, celebrating the small things, what’s working well, what’s not working well.  My problem is, I’m no writer, who cares what I have to say, what if I sound like an idiot, what if there are spelling and grammar mistacks (can’t have that as a teacher) 😉

Looks like it’s here to stay, so I best get over myself and get blogging…with my team of quadbloggers. See you all in the bloggersphere 🙂

  1. Hi Kate,
    Love your response. Exactly, that’s what all your students think when you are introducing them to blogging. They see it as writing and spelling etc. Just like you they have the same fears. How do we help them overcome their fears?
    Once you leave the secretarials behind and think about your voice you will get into blogging. Its the same with the students. This is your chance to have a voice. Students have to write narratives. How often in your life do you ever write narratives. Can you feel their disengagement?
    This doesn’t have quite the same effect as a blog with someone around the world because we see each other face to face each day. However why haven’t you said this to me face to face in the staff room at the meeting? Why don’t students speak up in class? Blogging gives people the chance to be heard without time restrictions or someone else taking over the conversation.
    I like your writing as it is full of passion and voice. I have a challenge in front of me as you do with your class. We will strive to inspire together one step at a time.
    Thanks Kate.
