Blogging Buddies

Recently I signed up to participate in Blogging Buddies. This is arranged through ISTE's Ed Tech Coaches PLN group. There are, currently, about 100 participants ready to learn from each other. The Blogging Buddies PLN was inspired by The Compelled Educator

Part of this adventure is a commitment to blog at least one time per month and offer feedback in the form of comments on blog posts by participants in my group. Since there are almost 100 participants, we have been divided up into smaller groups of 4-5 group members. 

If you are interested in joining Blogging Buddies, sign up HERE!

I am ready to get this adventure started and learn from my group members.
