Bellwether is planning to host another blog training, Saturday August 11, in Washington D.C. This seminar is geared specifically for current or aspiring teacher bloggers. You can learn more and apply via this link. Applications are on a rolling basis, deadline is July 9, and we had a 5-1 applicant to slot ratio last time so apply early. There is no charge and stipends for travel are available.
Here’s what teachers had to say about the last training:
“The Bellwether Better Blogging conference was a great opportunity to meet influential professionals engaged in promoting their voices and perspectives online, and to learn from them how to better promote and refine my own classroom-based perspectives on education reform. From those sessions, I gained the confidence and vision to start a new blog and establish my voice as an advocate and teacher. The insights I gained and the people I met at the conference continue to enrich my work.” – Mark Anderson, Gotham Schools
“The Better Blogging seminar greatly improved my writing. I am blogging more concise, poignant pieces and my voice as a teacher has gained greater confidence. I am now starting to network online and build a loyal readership.” – Marilyn Rhames, Charting My Own Course
