1. Create a SimpleMeet or a TodaysMeet classroom. Blog about how you could potentially use this with students.

2. Remember to post at least 2 blog posts a month.




If you can't think of what to write about in your blog post, keep these things in mind:

  • Keep the blog post on the theme of the month. Think about the ideas, tools, or concepts introduced when writing your post.
  • What this month was interesting to you? How could you see using an idea, concept, or tool in your professional or personal life or in the classroom, or how have you already used it? Give examples.
  • What was new to you? Identify an idea, concept, or tool that was new to you and explore your thoughts about this new item and how it could add to or change something you already do.
  • Keep it positive. We know you may not love every idea, concept, or tool we tell you about, but tell us positively why you think it may not work for you. Give examples.
