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.
My idea – if you like it and are happy to play – is to issue a new challenge each week for class bloggers. So that we can help each other, share ideas and all improve our class blogging.
Each week I’ll be setting a challenge and asking you to share your 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 week – though it will always be a case of the more the merrier.
We’re about to head into the summer holidays which will be a great time for those people who want a class blog but haven’t set one up before to get all the technical stuff out of the way, and get a secure plan in place, before class starts in September. So the first challenges will be geared towards helping you set up your blog and helping you plan how to use it in class.
By September we’ll all be ready to go and the challenges will be suitable for anyone with a class blog whether they’re brand shiny and new or super experienced and looking for new challenges.

So are you in? If you’re interested in the idea, please leave a comment to register your interest and share any ideas you might have about what kinds of challenges you would like to see.
