Before filling in the registration form please read the following:
Who should register
- Teachers who have their own class blog can register, can be any blogging platform
- Classes which want to connect with other classes around the world
Reminders before registering
- If your blog URL is very long, then use a shortener such as this one from Google Also handy when students are registering their blogs on their form (especially if kidblog as the URL is usually long).
- In case I need to contact you, an email is the easiest way, so please fill that in on the last question on the form. This is not published but other teachers could contact me in case you don’t have a contact spot on your blog.
A few days after you have registered
- Check the class participants page which will appear in the header area to make sure you are there.
- If you are not on the participants page, register again being careful that your blog URL is correct
- If you are on the participants list, start visiting other classes of similar grade level.
- Fill in the subscription by email so you are notified when posts are published each week – first challenge will be October 4 or if you have Edublogs reader, click on follow then you will be able to read posts in your reader.
- Make sure you have some great posts written so others can leave comments.
If publicising any posts on twitter, please use the hashtag #15stubc
So you have read everything above this line, now is the time to register
Are you a student with your own blog?
Are you a teacher with a class blog?
Are you an interested teacher, educator, home school parent
or pre-service teacher with a bit of time on your hands?
If you want to take part in the 8th student blogging challenge then it is now time to register. Hover over the pages in the header to find your registration page.
The first challenge will appear in early March. There will be three sections.
- Blogging – this set of activities will relate to setting up your blog, especially if you are new to blogging.
- Students – these will be activities for students to go on with once they have finished the blogging activities. Most likely students who have taken part in the challenge last year will be doing these activities.
- Classes – similar to students in that once you have the blogging activities done then choose some out of this section to complete as a class.
If you have any ideas for challenges, please leave a comment on this post. Make sure your name and blog URL are included as you will be given acknowledgement if your activity is chosen during the challenge.
Remember, you do not have to do all the activities, just choose the ones that interest you.
Is your class going to take part in the March 2011 challenge with a class blog?
Have you set up your class blog yet?
If your answer is no, then check out the second teacher challenge which will be starting mid February. They will be walking you through setting up the blog and using it with students. There will also be discussion questions where you can network with other teachers.
If you want to get ahead then work through these pages from the Edublogger – these activities will be similar to those in the teacher challenge sessions.
Keep checking this blog for a registration form for classes that will appear in mid February.
If you have students who will be registering their own blogs, there will be a separate form for them to fill out also mid February.

A few changes this year to the way teachers register for the blogging challenge. Ronnie, from Edublogs, has created a form that will allow us to have a directory on the Sept. 2010 classes page. The directory will show the latest three posts from your class blog as well as a thumbnail of your blog.
UPDATE UPDATE We have found this directory is not working well when using Internet Explorer. If possible use Firefox when viewing the Sept. 2010 Classes page.
So here we go:
1. Fill in the form below.
2. On the sidebar, fill in the details for the mailing list chimp.
Every three or four weeks we will be sending out a newsletter regarding the challenge. This will go to each person who has filled in the mailing list chimp.
Just over one week until the student blogging challenge begins.
Are you ready to push yourself?
So far we have had over 50 classes from 10 different countries register: Australia, USA, New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico, Canada, Norway, UK, Hong Kong and UAE. Check out their blogs on the page link on the right called ‘March 2010 classes’.
We have also had over 170 students register with their own blogs mainly from USA, Canada and Australia. Make sure you check out the link for the page on the right: ‘March 2010 students’. Each couple of days I will be re-sorting the list of participants so they are in order by age.
If you want to leave a comment here telling me what topics you would like to write about in the challenge, that might help me with my forward planning.
Teachers who have registered classes, I hope you have been keeping up with the pre-challenge activities for your class blog at TheEdublogger – written by the fantastic Sue Waters.

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.
