Internet technology connected people with each other who are living across the countries. It is something like saying "The whole world is a village" or even we can imagine the concept of "Global Village" where the distances became too short to contact each other. Similarly when we talk about schools, education and teachers we find the awesome uses of information and communication technology. Blogs, social networking websites and portals are the most common examples of this. Generally many people use social networking sites for sharing their ideas and they do not need to start own blog but here I want to put some top reasons why teachers should write blogs. These are my own ideas.
* Reasons for teachers to write Blogs*
Blog as Digital Profile:When anybody writes his own personal blog that means he is going to share something to others. He can put his information in his blog. Teachers can make their blog as their digital profile including their educational qualification, their achievements and their innovations and special efforts. They can put this information in a separate page or they can link their Google plus profile with blog. So blog is also as a digital portfolio of a teacher. In a blog they can put their own ideas about any topic and can decorate their blog with few pictures, greeting and paintings so. We can say that blogs could be used as "Digital Portfolio".
It is easy way for teachers to express them online in a self-controlled way.
Planning and Getting New Ideas:As many social networking sites teachers can write their future planning and ideas about any topic So blog is a means of getting new ideas and suggestions too. Blog is the place where different readers read one post and comment if they need it. So it is an useful mode of expressing our ideas to others.
Many students want to read their teacher's ideas, articles and stories. Blog is the best place for it. It is very easy way to be connect with teachers. If there is an e-mail ID provided in blog, anyone can connect you via e-mail.
Personal Diary:Sometimes we have many ideas and stories to share with others but we could not share them. Blog is an ideal place for it. Teachers also want to share inspirational stories to others. They can blog them.
Collaborative Teaching-learning:Internet made easy to be connected with others via online. Blogs are the easy way to share and read others story. Teachers can write their ideas on their blog. It can be used as an easy source of getting information and sharing ideas. Tags are the smart way for classify different posts under different sections. Teachers of different schools can discuss and share their ideas on different methodologies and can solve their problems too.
Blogging as Personal Improvement:Blogging is a great source of getting knowledge and interacting the people with the same ideas. When we start blogging, we read other's blogs too. Blogging is useful to enrich our vocabulary and word power. It is useful to improve our writing and reading skill too. The blogs which is full with inspirational articles and quotes are very helpful for us.
