Well done…

Well done to all of you that have spent time this weekend following up on the student blogging challenge.

I have visited all of your blogs this weekend and left some comments.

This week you will be asked to gather evidence to help you make judgements about your blogging progress. We will revisit the blogging rubric we developed as a class quite some time ago.





5A…welcome to the world of blogging

Last week we spent class time setting up our individual blogs.  The classroom was abuzz with excitement and enthusiasm. For one or two of you, there was also a little frustration as you had to ‘problem solve’ some initial login problems.

So yes…working with technology can be both challenging and rewarding at the same time.

This week we will be exploring this question… ‘How do I create a great blog post?’

I look forward to your thoughts.


Digital footprints…what are they and why are they important?

I know for a fact that you have heard of the term ‘digital footprints’.

Do you really know what they are ?

Tomorrow we will view this segment from  Behind the News. You will be asked to leave a quality comment. I wonder why?

Oh…and by the way 6B, what is a time capsule? Have a conversation with mum and dad. I’m sure they can shed some light on the subject.
