Today’s blog is about a blog!

Target 2 – Leadership in a Student Centered Learning Environment FWSU will foster development of teacher & student leaders who provide innovative opportunities for local and global student-centered learning.

Action Step – Ensure students and staff take an active role shaping their learning using rich, authentic questions, problems they identify, & diverse resources.

blog picblog: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer.The word blog is a combination of two words: Web and log.  It is a log of thoughts and writing posted publicly on the World Wide Web. In the world of the Internet, Web log soon became the word blog.

Each day at FWSU we blog about our schools and our action plan. But did you know we also have students and teachers blogging. Some even blog on a regular basis to share their thoughts and ideas with the world.

John Tague, BFA Math Educator, is one of those people. John established the Left Handed Educator blog last May. One of his first entries he grappled with the question of why. He stated “So, I’m jumping into the blog world. I’ve been inspired by others whose blogs I’ve read and I think I need a place to put my thoughts down so I don’t lose them. Maybe someone else will read them and pick something up, but for now I don’t think that’s my purpose for writing.”

As time has passed, John has certainly found his voice. His posts delve into his understanding of both his teaching and more importantly student learning.  His posts inspire thoughtful reflection for those of us who are fortunate enough to read them. We suggest you all give the Left Handed Educator a read. You can also follow him on Twitter as well.
