TomDalePort6Now, here’s our new, “hot-off-the-press” RE@L Set of Helpful Guidelines:

RE@L currently publishes two blogs weekly, and generally focuses on the following topics and hashtag areas, and others as well:

RE@L, Inc’s Blogsite CoEditors, Tom and Dale (that’s us on the right), solicit your timely, terse and pithy blog for publication in our RE@L blogsite, including, but not limited to these keywords, many of which also have Twitter hashtags for easier following: edtech, edreform, effective iPad apps, historical context of K12 technology, K12 learning, gaming, babysitting business, K12 simulation learning, coding, K12 systemic change, STEM, K12 Skills Learning, CurriculumReform.

We are also wide open to your ideas for other related topic areas as well, especially if they are current and related to K12 technology for teaching and learning.

Please visit and review some of the published blogs on our RE@L site to get a sense of what we are looking for by clicking on the link at the top of this page.

Here are the RE@L Blog Content and Style Guidelines:

•   Length should be approximately 300-500 words; more content may be submitted and if approved, may be split into two separate blogs.

•   We want more overview and less scholarly content. It’s fine to cite or link to supporting research or studies, however. It’s our goal to address controversial topics and feature opinions from both sides of an issue.

•   Your blog should be inviting, topical, compelling and add to the general understanding of the K12 audience we serve: teachers, administrators, students and parents. Special attention will be given to submissions that further our RE@L Blog goals: We are THE site to go to for relevant information and news about K12 ed tech. 

•   We prefer short paragraphs that provide a flow of ideas that are easily followed. Typically we want to see this format: a “grabber” lead-in statement or question; a brief overview, some proposed solutions or conclusions; citations if needed: and a final summary.

•   Photos (your own included), links, graphs, video links, all go a long way in making your blog more inviting to read and personalized.

•   After you submit your blog draft, we will promptly review it, make any edits we believe are necessary to maintain consistency with RE@L’s mission, and return it to you for your approval. You are welcome to elucidate further on any points of issue, but the final determination to print it lies with the RE@L Blog Editors.

•   If your blog is printed, RE@L reserves the right to introduce the blog and provide closing comments, the goal of which is to support your blog’s thesis. 

•   We will likely make some changes to our Guidelines over time. If so, we will repost the revised Guidelines.

Lastly, and as a bonus to all guest bloggers, is the fact that RE@L staff excerpt key words and passages from your blog and connects them to our other social media outlets: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.  You will get far more exposure and readership from your guest blogs on RE@L’s blogsite.

We’d be pleased to have YOU join our Elite Team of RE@L Guest-Bloggers.  

We welcome any questions you may have or submission ideas to propose.
