Summertime - Start a blog...

This is a repeat of an earlier post, but I think it is worth repeating. And if you want to spend some time with me come learn about blogging in a face to face session:
Pirate Tips Live!
One of the easiest ways to have a web page is to create a blog. Your newest content will always appear at the top of the page, you can add a variety of content, and you can post in a number of ways.
Your pinckneypirates.org account (or any google account) has a Blogger account connected to it. Which means that your username (including @pinckneypirates.org) and password will grant you access to the wonderful world of simple web publishing.
In this post I'm going to offer a few "levels" of blogging:
  • Just the basics - you can post and people can read what you write
  • Enough to be dangerous - your posts might include some pictures and videos, as well as scheduled posts
  • Showing off a little - you can post to your blog from your phone or email

Let's get started.

Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is a quick and simple way to communicate with others. With this tool you can chat, send text messages, connect to a telephone number, do a video conference, or even share your screen with another computer.
In this post I will walk you through getting setup, show you how to use the tool, and give you some ideas about how this could be used in your classroom.
