Our students are about to go out on their first major teaching placement, so how do I move this forward without resorting to the big stick of making it assessable? ("Is this in the exam sir?") I'm assuming that some of you reading this are better at talking people into blogging than me. For example Ollie Bray got his student, Richard Ledingham, blogging about his experiences in school. (Are you reading this Ollie?) So my question is, how do I convince some students to start blogging?
How do I respond to these common reasons for not starting a blog?
- It's all about ego and self-publicity.
- I don't want to share personal stuff about myself online.
- It would take too much time.
Over to you. What do I say to my students?
