Challenge 1: All about you

Welcome to the seventh student blogging challenge.

Looking through the list of participants, we have very few students who have taken part in a challenge before so the activities will be new to you all. A reminder that some activities will be about setting up your blog while other activities will be writing posts or improving your commenting skills. Each week you can choose to do as many of the activities as you like or your teacher might choose the one they want for that week.

Whatever happens – Enjoy your blogging!

When you meet someone for the first time or join a new class, you usually have to introduce yourself. Most blogs have a page called ‘About’ or ‘Sample Page’ or ‘Profile’.

Activity 1. Write or update your ‘About’ page. Tell your readers your first name only, a bit about your interests but remember to be internet savvy and not give out any personal details. Check out these  students – EmmaDaniel , ChloeSimon , Ben and Molly. If you wrote your ‘About’ page last year, things will have changed – so update the information or improve the layout of what you have written to make it easier for your readers to understand.

In Edublogs, log in to your dashboard. On left go to all pages, hover under sample page and click edit. Make sure you change the title and delete what is already written there. Once you have finished, hit the update button. Now remember to go to appearance> widgets and drag your ‘Pages’ widget to your sidebar.

If using Blogspot, check out this blog and all its hints.

……………….

Because Sue Waters (from The Edublogger) and I want to know about student commenting skills, we would like everyone to do the next activity.

Activity 2. Leave a comment on this post to answer the following questions.

Why did you join the blogging challenge?
What do you hope some of the activities include?
Finally, what do you hope to get out of the challenge by the end of the ten weeks?

……………….

Because we can’t all meet face to face (f2f), we have to have an online identity to represent us. Whenever I leave a comment on your blog, you will see a grey haired lady. I love wearing thongs on my feet and drinking iced tea. So that is a picture representing me – these pictures are avatars.

Activity 3 – make an avatar

Step 1. Create an avatar for your blog and for you to use when leaving comments.

Avatars are a representation of yourself. Check out this post about avatars.  Create your avatar using one of the websites below.

Most important is remember to save as a jpeg file if using Edublogs.

MyHero[1] avatar2 avatar3 avatarbig

Any age can use these avatar sites:

From abi-station:

But over 13, need parental or guardian permission for these.

14 or older with parental permission

Step 2. Using printscreen to save your avatar or use the snipping tool

So you decided to create an avatar like “Hero Factory” or “Build your wildself” or “Mini Mizer” where you can’t save it easily. You need to take a picture of the screen first. Most computers have a printscreen button on the keyboard or if using Windows 7 you have an icon called “snipping tool”. Not sure what Mac users have but I am sure there is a similar button on your computers.

When you press printscreen or use the snipping tool an image of your screen or part of it  is now copied to your clipboard. You will still need to crop and resize to get an avatar that fits well on your blog.

Open MS Paint and click control V to paste your image from the clipboard. To save, you need to go to File>Save As> change the name of the file to yourname with ava eg  sueava then underneath change the file type to JPEG. Make sure you save your avatar to your drive.

Go to your drive, right click on the icon for your avatar image and choose “Open with” choose MS Picture Manager. This might be in Microsoft office tools.

In the icons at the top, go to View> task pane.  On the right go to edit pictures > crop.  Now move the black bars on the side of your image in, to crop your picture to what you want in your avatar.

Click OK, then back to edit pictures. Now click on resize. In the box “custom width and height” put  97 in both boxes. These numbers might be slightly different but one has to be 97 and the other smaller than 97. Click OK.

Back up to file>save as> call it sueava2 or similar> make sure it is still JPEG. Make sure you have saved it to your drive again.

Step 3. Upload avatar to your Edublogs blog

Now to upload to your blog.  Go to your dashboard> users>your avatar> browse to find your image on your school H drive>alternate upload.  This is your comment avatar.

Now for your blog avatar. Dashboard>appearance>widget> blog avatar drag to your sidebar.  To upload the avatar, dashboard>settings>blog avatar> browse to find your image on your school H drive>alternate upload. Go to your blog page and refresh. Your blog avatar should appear on your blog now.

If it now looks like a black coloured square then you haven’t cropped the image to the correct size in step 2 using printscreen. Or maybe you didn’t save the image as a JPEG in step 2 using printscreen.

Activity 4 – Write a post describing your avatar.

How much does it look like you? What sort of personality does your avatar have? What makes it typically you? Remember to include your avatar as an image in your post.

Activity 5 – Visit 10 student blogs in the challenge where you have the same interests.

Write a post or leave a comment telling me who you visited and what post you commented on in their blog. Why did you comment on that post?

Activity 6 – Write a tutorial post about creating your avatar

This would be handy for Miss W to have for the next set of challenges. Your post could be used to teach other students or teachers about how to create, resize and upload their avatar especially if using blogspot, kidblog or a Mac computer. Mention in your post what type of computer you were using and the programs used for resizing etc.

Extra activity or as a class – Create different avatars and share them with the world.

Now create an animoto with your images to embed in your blog. Check first if your teacher has a class animoto reference code.

Maybe you know a tool to create a flip book that can show your class avatars with a description similar to activity 4.

If you don’t want to create an animoto, then add the avatars in a gallery to your blog post. Check out how Max created his animoto. Check out the post about his family by Jack.

Remember to leave a link back to this post (see below) if you have written about one of the activities in your blog.

    Thanks Amber

  11. HI Miss W,
    This is my answers to the questions!
    I joined the blogging challenge because I have done it wice before and enjoyed. The reason I signed up the first time was because my teacher said it would fun to do and she was correct. Why did you start up the challenge?
    I want to get more visitors to my blog, learn more about commenting html codes to create symbols and smileys. I also want to get ideas for posts.
    A challenge that I would hope to see is a story with no words challenge ( that one was fun) and maybe we could make one where one person writes as a comment their favourite website that has things to embed onto your blog and after you could try some of the ones you have never used before!
    Keep blogging

    • Teegan,
      Thanks for your reply and I started the challenge so my students could get out into the big, wide world through their blogs. In that first challenge we had students fromPortugal, Canada and USA. They had to learn how to translate the Portuguese which was interesting.

      Thanks for your idea of a comment about your favourite website that allows embedding. That would be good to put in the Digital Footprint activities.

  19. Hi Mrs W and other students,

    Why did you join the blogging challenge?

    Well my teacher (Mrs Thomas) told my class that anyone with a blog should join the student blogging challange, so I did and I am glad I did.

    What do you hope some of the activities include?

    I hope some of the activites involve doing something creative, different and unexpected.

    What do you hope to get out of the challenge by the end of the ten weeks?

    I hope to get more noledge and more visiters to my
    blog.

    By Chloe;)

  20. Hi Sue
    Thanks for mentoring so many of us through this process. Your expertise, advice and support is very appreciated. To complete Activity 2 answers to your questions follow…

    Why did you join the blogging challenge?

    I’m a new blogger with a class of Year 1′s. I thought it would be a good way to expand my knowledge and increase my class’s expertise. I am also looking to connect with other blogging classes and student bloggers.

    What do you hope some of the activities include?

    Making avatars and embedding them into the blog has already been a highlight. It has been good to have links to blogs to be able to see what other student bloggers are doing (and to give us the opportunity to comment) Teegan did a magnificent post about avatars (Thanks Twitter for telling me about her post) and Max and Jack had such cool examples on their blogs to get us started.
    I’m keen to explore web 2.0 tools that I might not yet be aware of. I want to understand about the use of Creative Commons.

    Finally, what do you hope to get out of the challenge by the end of the ten weeks?

    I hope to have learnt new techniques, about web 2.0 tools and discover new things that will help me be a better blogger and help me to improve the skills my Year 1 children are building as novice posters and commenters. I know I’ll look back and think – WOW – I’ve learnt so much.

    Thanks again Sue and Sue for all your work as coordinators.

    • Grace,
      Spam is often a comment left on a post that has nothing to do with the post. The person who sends the spam often doesn’t use your name or their name in the comment. They also often have at least one link that will take you to a site where they are selling something like shoes or handbags.

  75. Hello,

    I’m really excited to be involved in my first blogging challenge with my class.

    Here are the answers to your questions
    Why did you join the blogging challenge?
    I joined the challenge for a few reasons. Firstly, to learn more about blogging so that our class blog can be as exciting and interesting as possible. Also, to increase mine and my class’ ICT skills and to make connections with classes around the world.

    What do you hope some of the activities include?
    I hope some of the activities include collaborative projects with other schools and classes. Also, activities which teach me how to add slideshows, videos, new widgets etc to the class blog. Perhaps also how to involve parents for a sustained period of time (and not just when we have our blog challenge month)

    Finally, what do you hope to get out of the challenge by the end of the ten weeks?
    I would like to have made new connections with classes and to have new features on the class blog (new skills).

    On a completely different note, I have started the challenge with my class and we all made avatars in buildyourwildself. We’ve cropped them but I can’t work out how to load student ones to the blog. Mine is fine but I can’t add users to my global2 blog as any email address I use is not accepted. Doe I need to upgrade my global2 membership? Hoping you can help solve this problem as my class is very keen to get their avatars to appear next to their comments.

    Regards,
    Miss C & 3/4C

Finally, what do you hope to get out of the challenge by the end of the ten weeks? I hope to have learnt to create new widgets and posts to put on my blog and I hope to have more people visit and comment on my blog.

  254. Hi Miss W:

    Firstly, I’m sooo excited, because I’ve always wanted to have a blog or webpage!
    So the answers to your questions are:
    1. I joined this competition because we’re making our own blogs at school, and they told us to subscribe.
    2. Putting some games for other people to have fun, or really challenging things!
    3. I really want to have lots of comments of other people around the world, and lots of visitors. I want to have new friends from other places, obviously, following the internet safety rules.
    Also, I want to have really fun and interesting things, so that people really like my blog and visit it more frequently. I hope this is going to be such fun, and secure, because, I’ve always been a little bit scared about internet safety.

    Thank you for giving us the opportunity of challenging ourselves in such fun things.

    Your blogger number 142534428476238437, (I invented that number),
