The time has arrived for students to register their personal blogs if they are taking part in the student blogging challenge for March 2010. Please register only once and check a couple of days later that your name and blog is on the page to the right called ‘March 2010 students’. If your name is not there, I will have taken it off because you had a wrong URL most likely.
You came to this blog to register your class for the student blogging challenge, but you can’t see the google form on the previous post?
Here is a link to the google form that you should be able to get to, but please also remember to use the mailchimp email in the previous post as this will help if we do a general mailout to teachers about the challenge or the activities involved.
Now check the page on the right sidebar called ‘March2010 classes’ to make sure your class blog is registered correctly.
Students will be able to register next week. They will have a different form to the teachers and they will also have their page on the right sidebar.
There are two things included in this post for teachers to do.
Fill in the mailchimp email below. This will allow us to send out to all classes a newsletter or reminder in one mail out without Sue Waters or Miss W having to do separate emails.
Fill in the google form which will then have results shown in the page on the right called ‘March 2010 classes’
Next Sunday, there will be two registration forms – one for classes and one for students. They will be google forms embedded in the post but there will also be a link in case you can’t get google forms at school.
Please make sure you fill in the correct form. Once you have registered, please check the next day on the page for students or classes to make sure your information is correct. Every Sunday I will be re-sorting the student page according to the country you are from. I will also be deleting any registrations that don’t work correctly – wrong URL given.
I hope you all enjoy the challenge this year.
Teachers, after having run the student blogging challenge three times, I am getting a feel for those things that need to be done BEFORE your class actually takes part in the challenge.
Have you created a class blog? There are many different platforms to use but instructions in these challenges will be for those teachers and students using Edublogs.
On your class blog, do you have a map or list of where visitors are coming from to read your blog? Checkout clustrmaps and flag counter.
If your students have their own blog, have you created a blogroll (also known as adding links) to make it easy for your readers to visit their blogs? If you are unsure about this, check out the link on the sidebar called “Edublogs Help and Support”.
Also check out “The Edublogger” where Sue Waters is going to give a countdown of activities for teachers to do ready to have classes taking part in the student blogging challenge this year.

We made a big decision this year. The student blogging challenge is going to have its own blog. No longer visiting Miss W’s class blog, instead it will all be here.
But we need your help.
What would be a suitable title for the blog?
We also need a great tagline.
Do we need a blog avatar?
