Blogging in the classroom has not only made an impact in my classroom, but in classrooms around the world. I have had the opportunity to collaborate and create iTunes U courses to support teachers just getting started with their blogging adventures. Blogging for the Primary Classroom and Blogging for the Elementary Classroom, are courses designed to introduce blogging, show teachers how to get started, and ways to stay connected.
