Mentors and students: please read this

We are getting close to Easter Break here in Australia. That means we are half way through the blogging challenge. Over Easter, when I am travelling around Australia, I will be starting to remove students on the participants list if they haven’t completed the following:

  1. An about me page or post
  2. A post or page relating to commenting
  3. A post relating to images including attribution

Why do I do this?

Most students in the challenge don’t have a mentor, so the first students to be removed will be those who do have mentors but are not keeping up with the challenge activities. It is unfair on the other students who are taking part, that they don’t get to have a mentor.

Mentors By the beginning of Easter, can you please send me via email or in a comment on this post, the blog URLs that I should be deleting.

High school students: If you have some time and would like to mentor a group of 5-10 younger students, please leave me a comment on this post and include your URL so I can check you out first. If I do allocate some students to you, it will be mentioned as a reply to your comment. So remember to click the little box about notifying you of replies to this comment.

    • Hi Hamzah,
      Thanks for offering to be a mentor. I have given you a group of 10 year old students. They are all from different classes but I might be able to connect you with their teachers if you want. Go to the list of March 2017 participants, scroll down to the 10 year olds and you are there in a purple colour.

    • Hi Jamal,
      Thanks for offering to be a mentor. I have given you a group of 9 year old students. They are all from different classes but I might be able to connect you with their teachers if you want. Go to the list of March 2017 participants, scroll down to the 9 year olds and you are there in a khaki colour.

    • Hi Saad,
      Thanks for offering to be a mentor. I have given you some 10 year old students nearly all from New Zealand. I could give you the teacher contacts if you would like to connect with them. Go to the list of March 2017 participants, scroll down to the 10 year olds and you are there in a yellow colour.

    • G’day Hamza,
      Thanks for offering to mentor. I have given you a group of 10 year old students. The first one Madison is often mentioned in the magazine and is very keen. Go to the list of March 2017 participants, scroll down to the 10 year olds and you are there in a green colour.

    • Hi Mantaqua,
      Thanks for offering to be a mentor. I have given you a group of 9 year old students. They are all from the same class and I might be able to connect you with their teacher if you want. Go to the list of March 2017 participants, scroll down to the 9 year olds and you are there in a blue colour.

  3. Kia Ora Ms Wyatt

    We are enjoying the activities for the SBC and we’re doing our best to keep up. Please excuse my ignorance… I looked at the videos for the Week3 Challenge, but am still unsure about how to use Creative Commons and attributions correctly (and I’m the teacher-LOL). I understand the theory of ‘copyright’ and protecting people’s work, but not sure how to implement this CC business.
    Consequently, our Week 3 Challenge activities are weak, but we still want to be involved. If you can direct me to a ‘How to…’ tutorial with regard to this, I would be happy to try and teach it in my class.

    Kind regards

    Jane

    • Hi Jane,
      Did you check out the post by Sue Waters? She runs the teacher challenge similar to the student challenge and she has one section all about creative commons and attribution and using images on your blog. I think I mentioned her post on my challenge post for images in week 3.

  4. Dear Ms.Wyatt,

    Great news. I am having such a great time mentoring the conscientious and hardworking bloggers that you assigned me from Mr. Geiman’s class.

    There is every sign between badges, About Me pages, posts and the use of the hashtag #stubc17 that they are all on board with the Student Blogging Challenge.

    With every good wish,

    Merry Beau
