A few months ago, our tech department launched a new technology blog-St. Christopher's Tech Central Got Tech?! Now a blog itself is not a new concept but rather than having posts written by the techies, we've been soliciting teachers to share their successes. In addition to those posts, we post information about training opportunities, tech tips, and controversial articles.
As a result, we have teachers from our lower, middle, and upper schools sharing and commenting on the blog posts. The asynchronous discussions are taking place and our teachers have been expressing their opinions and applauding their colleagues' efforts. But perhaps the best part about the blog is that it is written by the faculty and causing what I like to call positive peer pressure.
So if you have a few moments, please stop by and write a comment and show our faculty that they have an audience considerably larger than our school community.
