Class Blog Challenge

Have you ever thought about setting up a class blog but don’t know how?  Or do you have a class blog but it’s not really working out as well as you hoped – or maybe you have a successful class blog but you just can’t get parents to interact?  Well if you’re any of the above then the class blog challenge could be for you.

 

I will be regularly issuing new Class Blog Challenges so that we can learn together, help each other, share ideas and all improve our class blogging.

 

Each session I’ll be setting a challenge and asking you to share your resulting posts – then encouraging you (or your pupils) to read and comment on each other’s posts.

 

There will be a wide range of challenges and no pressure to be involved every time – though it will always be a case of the more the merrier.

 

Session 1 – Objective Setting

Session 2 – Setting up your class blog

Session 3 – Writing your first post

Session 4 – Getting your pupils started
