I always seem to find useful resources a moment too late…

But, that’s OK, because I know I can use them again in the future. This time around, I’m wishing I had read Mike Hetherington’s posting about the benefits of student blogging before I made my presentation yesterday. I did mention almost all of the benefits that he points out, but I missed number 5. Oh, how I wish I had mentioned that blogging supports differentiation. Ah well, hopefully everyone who attended my session will be anxious to find out my inner thoughts this weekend, and will read this post!

Another great one I missed out on yesterday, is this short article from McGraw Hill / Glencoe about how to use blogs in the classroom. Whenever I give a presentation, I always like to hand out one or two articles about the topic so that participants know that I’m not the only one that believes in the topic. I had a great article, of course, but it would have been nice to also have this one since it covers all the basics.
