Schools That Blog

A blog – short for weblog – is simply an online repository of short-form content. These short (ideally 300-600 words) articles are known as blog posts.

Blogging is a required part of any inbound marketing strategy and is a great way to help reinforce your school’s brand, help with search engine optimization (SEO), and, ultimately, attract prospective families to your school.

Schools are using blogs in an amazing array of ways. I’ve seen blogs used as:

  • a mini-website,
  • a classroom enhancement that provides links to resources, assignments, and information,
  • a place to create and manage student blogs,
  • a showcase for student work,
  • a professional educator blog,
  • a library blog,
  • to facilitate group collaboration and projects,
  • for the educator’s digital portfolio,
  • educator’s professional development,
  • educational thought leadership,
  • for inbound marketing, among others.

Back in October 2015 – and more recently in the SchneiderB University Facebook Group – I asked for examples of schools that are blogging.
