The use of a blog to distribute information or to get feedback from others regarding any topic of interest is great. The use of blogging for educational purposes provides an avenue where students are not judged for who they are but by the content of their blog. To be able to collaborate and contribute information to projects or discussions is a venue for anytime, anywhere learning.

Below are some of the people I have admired and included in their blogs is information regarding the use of blogging for instruction purposes.

Reading others blogs regarding the use of technology integration in education can become overwhelming. The use of an aggregator does assist in downloading only the blogs you are interested in and does keep you updated on issues of interest. After subscribing to an rss feed, you then have the option to read the entire blog or you can pick and choose which ones you wish to read.

For the past couple of weeks, I have invited several people to join my blog regarding my trip to China. I am really looking forward to this trip and it will be the first time that I will be able to correspond with others while attending a conference. This will be great because besides being able to correspond with others I will also have a venue for documenting the trip for personal and professional reasons. From previous experience, documenting a conference is not easy due to the schedule normally followed. Using this blog will assist me in getting this done.

I have requested to attend the NJELITE training in Wildwood, NJ where David Waldrick will be one of the presenters. After attending the NJ Librarians Conference, I have become a great fan of his use of technology in his presentations and how educators can use these technologies in the classroom to provide a more interactive lesson. Also, how the use of technology could be used in applying for differentiated instruction.
