An (aspiring) Educator’s Blog

An educator blogging….novel idea.

Educating the Blogger-Activist

with 2 comments

Want a classroom full of blogger-activists? On Bloggers Unite!, you search for (or create) an activism cause, advertise your blogging event, and then blog about your event on the specified date. Other members of the Bloggers Unite! community can choose to join you in blogging about your cause. Many of us are already using social justice topics to help our students access content – this site adds a blogging and activism dimension that will excite your students.

There are over 70 events in the database – from Earth Day to International Literacy Day. You can create a cause specific to your school or community and get parents, other classrooms, businesses, and other members of your community to join your students in blogging about the cause. If you have activism or charity related events running in your classroom (walk-a-thons/races, penny drives, food drives, etc), use this tool to build community support.

Maybe you’ll inspire a Marx for the 2.0 generation.

  1. Glad to see more people joining Bloggers Unite! I think it is such a cool idea and will only be more and more powerful as it grows and more poeple start joining.

  2. I always find great stuff through Nisha’s tweets as well. That’s why I knew I had to get her on our Awesome Bloggers show.

    Here is the video interview I did with Nisha Chittal.

    I wish my professors at UCLA would have taught me about blogging. Then I would have been able to start my blogging career much earlier. Oh well, I think everything turned out for the better.
