The current national narrative on education is one littered with misperceptions, politically laced rants, and many voices not even directly involved in education. While taking back that narrative can be a challenge, The National Blogging Collaborative (@natblogcollab)believes that writing and blogging is one way to enable and empower teacher leaders in this quest to reclaim the narrative…OUR narrative. Blogging and co-blogging allow teachers the chance to share their experiences with the rest of the world, helping everyone see the truth about all the amazing things going on in classrooms across the country. Additionally, blogging provides educational leaders with the opportunity to develop a collaborative culture built upon sharing the written word both within their school and across the country. Through blogging teachers and leaders are able to not only share their success and seek help for their challenges, but they are able to learn from others in a safe and collaborative setting. For all these reasons, The National Blogging Collaborative was created for teachers by teachers in an effort to provide free, one-on-one, writing coaches to educators who are looking to get started with blogging as well as those who have been blogging for years. Simply put, we are here to help YOU share your your story. So, join us as we talk about the power of blogging and co-bogging for teachers and leaders.
Please join the National Blogging Collaborative (@NatBlogCollab) on Thursday, April 9 at 9 p.m. EST as they co-host #LitLead on Twitter.
