30 Days of Google #3: Create a Blogger blog

Submitted by Fiona Beal

One of the first things I think any teacher who is interested in technology-integration should do is create their own classroom blog.  A classroom blog can transform your class even if the only computer in the class is yours – your laptop! It will give the parents a peek into the classroom setup, and it will join you to a whole lot of new blogging teacher friends around the world. You can involve your students in your blog in so many exciting ways.  Google’s Blogger is a great blogging platform that gives ample free space, and it is also very attractive to look at and user-friendly to use.

So, take the challenge and see if my instructions will help you.
