Is online blogging the new, “it girl” in education?

I was doing my search for a good personal blogger who blogs solely about education. To do this my search started on the GOOGLE search engine of course. To be honest, I found this search a bit tedious and I had to dig and dig to find an interesting personal blogger who actually came up in the search when I typed in, “personal bloggers” I clicked on the image section in GOOGLE and then a million hits later I came across her site. As I read the headline, I was immediately ┬áintrigued. Her blog spot really is so unique in the fact that she is a professional teacher who teaches solely from her RV most times. This teacher believes that education is so important and is the key to success. The most important thing that I found different was the fact that she loves to camp and travel around the world. She said that for her wedding gifts instead of typical fine glass and china she wanted things that she and her husband could make great use of. She asked for camping equiment. Now how does this tie into her as a teacher and her views on education? She is quite different. You see online teachers teaching fgrom the comfort of their home, etc. However, she is a teacher that not only remarkavbly blogs but also she also grades exams, she responds to outstanding numerous e-mails dail and makes them a part of her professional life and she also takes the time to identify the weak spots of each and every single one of her students as if she had known them her entire life.

  1. Wow thats intrestng and cool, especially how she requested wedding gift that could be used for camping instead of things for the house, thats cool that she can do what she loves and be in the comfort of her RV. I think thats cool and i have nothing against online classes, seeing that this course we are in now is hybrid, but honestly I still perfer a classroom, This is good stuff though

  2. Malika,

    What an awesome title- quite the eye catcher. Anyhow in relation to your blog I totally think that this teacher you found to be intriguing is indeed an inspiration maybe she believes in the former philosopher Dewey. Perhaps she feels she can have students learning by doing. This is possible since she requires camping equipment for her wedding gifts. She like to learn and travel to learn, most importantly I feel she is connected with nature as well as nurture.

  3. the blogger does sound interesting, i can see how online classes might attract students who learn more by using a computer and working from home. It certainly caters for those who dislike traditional classrooms.

  4. its good to see she is a dedicated teacher. it definitely caters to those students who learn more using a computer at home, than those who prefer traditional classrooms

  5. learning others people philosophies can strengthen your own as a teacher and through blogging this teacher stays connected to her peers and teaches via the internet. This is cool because while she is traveling the world she can share her experiences with her students to inspire them, not only that she can expand on her topic by the sites and events she come across in which she can incorporate into her lesson. This innovative technique can trigger students to expand outside the class room to look for related knowledge to scholastic endeavors which pertains to topic or what ever information they strive to look for.

  6. I like your title. As for the blogger, she is definitely unique. Teaching from the comfort of her RV is something that society is not used to seeing. It’s very good to be able to find time in order to do all things that one loves to do. Although work is necessary in order to survive, many just focus on that lose sight of what life and nature has to offer. She’s a good example on how one can learn to utilize all the time and do everything he/she loves to do.=)

  7. this is very odd, to say the least lol. This is the first time I have heard of a teacher teaching out of an RV. However, I appreciate the bloggers honesty on what appeals to her and her ideas for education. That being said, I do not believe in online classes. I feel that you need face to face interaction.

  8. What an interesting post. This teacher really found a way to creatively reach her students while traveling and doing what she loves. It is also a good reminder that with creativity and a bit of hard work, almost anything is possible. This is a great thing to remember as we move and grow in our education careers.

  9. It is mostly unbelievable. What grade does she teach? I don’t quite understand and the idea is somewhat crazy. I noticed that you did not provide a link, can you provide it?

    I don’t appose your view completely, but if it’s working and the students are learning then I commend her. I believe a teacher especially k through 12 grades should be taught in the setting of a classroom. A classroom is sometimes the sanctuary for some. Where they learn from the teacher and peers through interaction with one another. I would really like the link, thank you.
