Calling all bloggers!

This is a call to bloggers to promote their blog on CPDCentral

I watched an interesting thought-piece from Dean Shareski (aka @shareski on Twitter) which got me thinking that ‘keeping our stuff’ to ourselves runs counter to calling ourselves educators (You can see the thought-piece on CPDCentral – CPDShort 8 or on the K-12 online educator site)

Many CPDCentral members have already taken up the challenge of sharing using the I-share area. However, like Dean, many Scottish educators also share on a regular basis using their blogs. Rather than ask these colleagues to share again on I-share, we have developed an area for showcasing these educators in CPDCentral (http://bit.ly/cpdcbloggers). A ‘slideshow’ of the latest posts can also be seen on the main I-share page.

So if your blog is not featured, let’s hear from you and give all CPDCentral members the benefit of your sharing. Here’s how:

  • If you’re already a member of the CPDCentral community, click on your picture, edit properties and add your blog name and link in the area provided
  • If you’re not a member, see What is CPDCentral? blog post on how to join

    I am trying to figure out how to make my blog (http://missholmes-cpd.blogspot.com/) available to others on Glow, but I have yet to figure out where to post the link or how to go about this exactly.

    I started a blog about my CPD experiences in regard to the challenge on Glow and because I wanted to find a way to take notes in a way that was accessible to me anywhere and was inexpensive to use. It contains my notes and reflections on meetings, workshops, book notes, etc.

    I figured out how to post my blog, but perhaps the instructions on how to do it need to be highlighted in some way that makes it easier for anyone interested just to see what they have to do – that they have to post the link, etc in their personal profile (as I didn’t realise that would make it public on Glow).

    Hi Shannon. Thanks for telling us about your blog. I will write a wee post and instructions on the http://bit.ly/cpdcbloggers page when I get a mo!
