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?
