This blog contains the basic skills needed for students learning to blog. They may have done some work with other teachers, but this is all about setting up their own blog, step by step.
The best way to use this blog is to click on the “Getting Started” page in the header. The posts will be linked there in order of completion.
Once you have completed all the activities in this page, you might want to improve your blog by adding other widgets, using images, adding videos etc. To find out about these choose the “How to …“page in the header. You can also use the tags and recent posts in the sidebar of the blog.
Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1pm – 4.30pm I have the online classroom open, for students and teachers to come in and ask questions or get help with their blog. A link to this classroom is found on the sidebar.
If using an ipad for the classroom you will need to download the Collaborate app first.
To have your own personal blog, you need to do the following:
- Make sure your teacher or parent sends me an email saying they are willing to be an administrator of your blog as well as yourself.
- Fill in the form in the header – Get my own blog
- I will create the blog once I get the email from teacher/parent. My email address is a widget on the sidebar.
