The Edublogger has a post where they showcase 10 examples of class blogs and explain why blogging is a smart tool for teachers and students. My blog is one of the few examples from high school. If you want to get started with blogging, see Edubloggers points for getting started and you might even want to consider this: If you haven’t already heard, we are running a free online course for educators who want to start their first class blog, or improve their classroom blogging program. And it’s starting soon!
There are 10 examples of class blogs, and I particularly liked this example, in fact, I would love to see more teachers sharing youtube videos like this:
Have you ever thought about recording your lessons and publishing them, not just for your own class, but for anyone who wants to watch and learn? Eddie Woo is a Sydney maths teacher who has done just that.
Eddie’s award-winning work has earned him a huge following with students from across the world. Eddie uses a WordPress site as an online hub for a blog, his YouTube channels, learning resources, and more. This is a great example of how blogs have evolved to be dynamic homes for any online creations.
Here is a page called Multiplication Games.
Welcome to MultiplicationGames.com, a fun and educational website. As the name implies, here you can learn all the multiplication tables no matter what grade you’re in. We have tables for all levels. The exercises on this site are provided in the form of multiplication games. Not only is this a lot of fun, you’ll learn math to boot.
The most popular multiplication games are listed below. Look for a fun task, try to solve all the multiplication equations and keep beating your record. You can play our exercises against the computer, but we also have games where you have to solve equations together with other players in your class or from other schools. Enjoy!
Thanks for sharing our post and our upcoming course. Hopefully some of your readers decide to take part so they can start reaping the rewards of blogging. 🙂
Your blog is such a unique and thriving hub. I was really pleased to share your example. I also loved Eddie’s example. I first found out about him on a documentary program called Australian Story last year. If you ever have a spare 30 minutes, this show is well worth a watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjIHB8WzJek
Blogging is an excellent tool for teachers and students to share their knowledge and creativity. The example of WooTube shows how teachers can record their lessons and make them accessible to students from around the world. It’s amazing how blogs have evolved to be dynamic homes for any online creations. Additionally, MultiplicationGames.com is an excellent resource for students to learn multiplication tables in a fun way. I appreciate the interactive aspect of the website and the ability to play games with other students. Keep up the good work!
