Week 5 – BAD and commenting
Not much this week regarding choice of activities as I want you to concentrate on writing a fantastic post for Blog Action Day on Wednesday 16 October. Remember the topic is
Remember to include an image in your post and give references or link back to where you found your information. Write in your own words, don’t copy and paste from another website. Try to be very factual in what you present but also be prepared to give your own opinion and justify that opinion. Think of an original title for your post, not just Blog Action Day. Try to include the hashtags #BAD13 and #13stubc in your post somewhere. This will make it easier for me to pick up some posts that might not be included in the form below.
We have started a special Flipboard magazine called “One World, Our World” We will be including great posts about global issues from week 4 challenge and also those well researched and informative posts from Blog Action Day.
Mrs Neidlinger’s class – please make sure this is a post like you did for digital literacy and stereotyping and not part of your Student Blogging Challenge page on your blog. I will only be flipping posts that are solely about the topic for Blog Action Day.
Admin regarding comments
Here are some great conversations happening between students and mentors, teachers and other students. Are you remembering to check your comments especially if you don’t moderate them?
Remember to also visit those classes where students don’t have their own blogs but are leaving fantastic comments such as Mrs Boyd’s class,
On the student participation list have you noticed some student ages in a green box – why?
- incorrect blog URL,
- no commenting allowed (have to login) or
- not enough challenge activities completed
These will be deleted this weekend, but I will check first in case you have caught up some of the activities.
I have also been finding some great posts by students, but they haven’t filled in the form at the end of each week’s challenge. So make sure you check out our Flipboard magazine as your posts may be in there.
To be included in Flipboard magazine from now on – writing in paragraphs, include an image with attribution or links to other websites, show that you have used a spellchecker and checked grammar/punctuation.
