Express Yourself Through Blogging and Vlogging

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Vlogging, is it a word we made up? No, we aren’t crazy! It is blogging, but with an added video component to make it “vlogging!”

Learn how we use blogging and vlogging in the classroom as a tool to engage and communicate!  Sarah Staudt will share her journey of blogging, while Ben Feight will take it to a whole new level by talking about vlogging and how he uses it to engage his 4th grade students through guided reading, literacy practices, and through daily classroom activities!

Whether it is you, the educator, or your students, blogging and vlogging encourages, promotes, and fosters self-expression and communication.  Audience members will learn what is blogging and vlogging, their purposes, why they are important, how they communicate what is happening in the classroom, how both tools show evidence of learning, and various other valuable applications. You will leave this presentation with confidence to implement blogging and vlogging in your classroom, as well as your own life, as an educator and person.
