Kloczko Day 3

Meet the demands of the Common Core by blogging with your students- at any grade. Learn how to use YouTube videos, Google Apps, and tons of multimedia tools to publish student writing and promote literacy across the content areas. Discover how student blogging and commenting can promote classroom discussion at your school and around the world. Teachers, teacher leaders and administrators can be bloggers, too! Model digital writing for your students, staff, and families. Participants will leave with a created Blogger site and a toolbox of digital tools to rock the blogosphere next school year.

How does blogging help you meet the Common Core Standards? Here are the K-12 anchor standards that will be addressed in this session:
