Why Teachers Should Blog


I’ve never been too big on Descartes.

That whole sort of essentialist argument has never been for me. I’m a guy who’s built furniture out of science fiction novels and travel books and who’s played concerts with nothing but a roll of tin foil and a microphone.

So I’ve never been too big on the idea that things exist because they have some fundamental essence.

Consider blogs.

There is no substantial qualitative definition of a blog. Blogs, or rather blogging platforms, just exist. The quality or essence of a blog is given meaning only via what the author does with the blog and how the blog is responded to.

And in my mind what this means is that I blog and what I blog — and how that message is received by others — tells me what I think.(teachPaperless)
