Educational Leaders and Blogs

"Sharing your inquiry in the form of a blog will help you plan with, develop, and challenge ideas that have developed about your administrative practice as a result of engaging in inquiry." (Dana, p150) Blogging will become a way not only to share your inquiry, but to practice your writing on a regular basis. An educator is required to right in the form of reports almost daily, but to write and reflect on the practices learned is rare. Blogging will allow the administrator to share their inquiry and information beyond their school and district. A community of bloggers can share their insight into each others questions and collaborate together while being supportive of one another. Administrators will also be able to encourage their staff to reflect on their teaching practices through teacher blogging. Together as a community of educators, we can be in charge of our classrooms and schools as we practice action research and inquiry with blogs.
