The Blogging Kraken: How to Keep Up with All Your Students' Blogs?, is a post about effectively monitoring your classes' blogs. She discusses the importance of blogs in developing a student's ability to document, reflect, organize, and use critical thinking. The importance of feedback from teachers to students is also highlighted. After discussing the importance of having students create blogs she then details how a teacher should set up an effective system for keeping track of them. Using the RSS Reader, Feedly, teachers are able to organize the blogs. Creating this system of organization allows for quicker review times, the ability to search through the blogs, keep up with when students post and keep track of your grading progress. Ms. Tolisano stresses that having an organized system is the best way of properly keeping track of the student' blogs.

The Langwitches post, Building Good C.U.L.T.U.R.E., Ms. Tolisano discusses how sharing through Twitter can lead to new ideas forming. She shares how a simple tweet directed at her lead to her creating a new piece of educational art. The tweet showed an acronym on how to build a good C.U.L.T.U.R.E. = Collaborate. Understand. Love. Trust. Unite. Respect. Empower. This simple phrase becomes a motto of sorts just by being shared through a social media source. This is an example of how quickly ideas can grow in this modern age of the internet.
