Does Blogging Help Educational Leaders?

No question!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes!!!!!!!!!!

Any time a dedicated educator engages in a conversation, online or otherwise, it is a great help to anyone who reads it. Sometimes we as educators just need to express ourselves and feel that we have a forum for our views. Blogging can largely be this outlet.

I chose to comment on  http://www.justintarte.com/. This blog was more appealing to me than some of the others because of the content on the front page……

The above video illustrates in a serious way the value of what Justin believes is most important for connecting with students…. taking the time to get to know them.
