Welcome to this humble educational servant. After using my blog for some time, I realized that there were a few deficiencies in the blogosphere. This small site was created with one main goal in mind: Teachers have to spend more time cooperatively supporting each other and becoming a positive force for education in an ever increasingly negative world.

ClassroomBlogging  was concieved 35,000 some odd miles above the ground on the way home from NECC 2006. The seed I’m planting is a hybrid seed containing blogging, cooperation, and community. As it gets watered by me and hopefully by many other teachers, one should see comments of support, resources posted by readers, and ideas on how we can build ourselves up in the eyes of local, state, and federal government staff.

While this is not a wiki, I do hope to facilitate document storage as well as website link collections. This will remain a work in progress, so join in and make an impact.

The Author: H Martin taught 5th grade for 12 years in Austin, TX, spent a year working teachers in a cooperative grant with a private univeristy, and is now working as an Instructional Technology Facilitator in Austin ISD.

    I am working for Allyn & Bacon Publishers on a college textbook titled TEaching & Learning with Technology 4e. The author would like to use this main screen grab of your blog in this book.
    Please let me know if this is permissible.

    Thank you very much.


    1. You are more than welcome to use this. Thanks.

    I am in a class entitled “Teaching With Technology”, and I happened to come across your site. I just wanted to thank you for posting it. There is a lot of good information on here.


    1. Thanks Steve! I have experienced a bit of ‘blog fade’, but appreciate the visits I still get here. The next version will start up eventually and will be more broadly based.

      Good luck with the class!
      Howard
