Places For Publishing Your Work
There are many options for publishing you works, both on and off-line. And the landscape is constantly changing. Thanks to search sites like Google, even the most obscure posting can be found easily.
One of the easiest ways to get started publishing on the Internet is to start a Blog. You can use it to communicate with students, share your thoughts on education, or let people know what works & doesn't work.
Students can use it to publish their work. Especially for group projects, adding the element of public review and recognition can drive students to a higher level of achievement.
Storify's concept to let the Internet help you tell your story, and make publishing simple.
"Collect media from across the web, publish on Storify, embed anywhere, and share" is their idea.
Worth checking out.
Use Smore to publish newsletters with multimedia.
Teacher Tube for teachers only enables professionals to host, tag and share instructional videos--a great collaboration.
The National School Board Association magazine accepts teacher online work.
TechLEARNING publishes articles about technology.
One of the saddest things is to find a great Internet resource that is no longer available. An instructor has moved to a different school district or retired and their pages on the school's server have been deleted. Or funding is no longer for a project and all content has been lost.
Check publication opportunities in the magazines and web sites of your favorite professional association.
Other opportunities include web sites, journals and magazines maintained by professional associations, accessible only by their membership, and NSF test bed projects whose mission is to support a reference or help desk or projects, related to yours (e.g., TERC for environmental studies).
Always make a copy of your work and, if you can, publish it on a web site that you control. It ensures your work will readily be available both now and in the future.
When you publish, indicate whether viewers can download it freely or must seek permission. Making a PDF version of your work available will be greatly appreciated.
