Week 8: Community
A week or so ago, I took part in a global education conference. The people who presented and listened to all the sessions are part of a network of educators around the world. They have their own little community or network.
As a student or teacher what type of communities or networks do you have both in school and outside of school hours?
These communities might include
- sporting groups
- after-school activities
- networks online such as Twitter, Facebook, Minecraft
- local community groups eg gardening or Boy Scouts
- country level groups
- global groups
This week the theme to write about is community.
You might like to think about the following and mention some in your post.
- The pros and cons of being in a community
- Which communities you are part of now
- Which communities you would like to join or be part of later in life
- Roles within a community
- Responsibilities when part of a community
- How to find out about communities to join
- Value of being in a community
Remember to have your post flipped to the magazine you need to have a great post as mentioned in previous posts in the challenge. This week I have flipped about 200 new posts to the magazine but I have also left comments about making sure you have included images and links within your great posts.
Keep visiting other students and reading posts from the magazine.
You will have a chance to nominate a great student and class blog for the Edublog awards. These blogs do not have to be from the Edublogs platform but just be a blog about education.
You will also have a chance to show how well your blogging has improved since beginning this challenge.
