- Week 8 – visiting blogs game, nominating great blogs for awards
The one and only activity for the next two weeks:
Write a post on a global issue you would like to help solve
I chose this topic because I have just spent 5 days attending a fantastic online conference about global education #globaled14. Check the hashtag for some great links to use for your challenge post.
Having read many of your posts, I came up with the following essentials in a great post.
- catchy title
- includes at least two visuals whether photo, cartoon, video or another web 2.0 tool like padlet, glogster, wordle etc
- interesting topic with the passion of the author coming through, shows well researched topic
- well written and not copy/pasted from somewhere else
- shows it has been proofread and spellchecked
- written in paragraphs – at least three of them
- includes links to other websites on similar topics – at least two of these
- attribution for any images, video, music or clip art used – including those used in slideshows etc
Here are some examples of great posts from last challenge:
Mark wrote about what family means
Nathan wrote about global issues in general
Kaitlyn wrote about education around the world
Pranav wrote about travelling overseas
Jannat wrote about my future
When you have finished your post, please come back here to the blogging challenge and leave a comment on this post.
Mention which topic you wrote about and leave a link to your post.
Those posts covering the eight things mentioned above will be added to our special flipboard magazine called One World, Our World.

Hi Miss W,
For my thing that I care about I chose a world issue, poverty. I chose poverty because I think people can do more to help those in need. To start off with countries could start helping people in their country, and then people from around the world.
Please visit my post at: http://tthit.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/11/23/what-i-care-about/
Hope you enjoy!
Have a great day

I have just been looking in the students for 2014 and my name plus country is in red. I have done two edublogs posts and an About me page so why is mine still red
So far I have only double checked the students under 11, but I will probably do the 11 year olds soon. But I have checked your blog and you certainly should not be in red any more.
