Media Literacy: Blogging Challenge

Audience: Teachers working on professional development through an online course. This will be built inside of the lesson about blog creation.

Description: Teachers will create a blog space on the internet. The blog can be used for a variety of different things but with three goals in mind:

  • Reflect on your teaching practice.
