Edit: Registrations are now closed. Join us for a new 10 week challenge beginning in October, 2019. Registrations will open in September.

The next Student Blogging Challenge is set to begin on March 3! This is a way for students to learn about blogging while connecting with others around the world. 

Read more about the challenge here.

Registrations for classes and students will open on February 10. Sign up for email updates if you haven’t already.

Right now, we’re looking for a team of adult volunteer commenters. Can you help?

Volunteer commenters are needed for the next Student Blogging Challenge! Register here.

New Video!

Here is a one-minute video message I recorded to help spread the word about our call for commenters. Could you share it with your colleagues or PLN?

The more commenters we can get on board, the more support our participating students will receive!

Note: Older students can also be commenters if they’ve participated in the Student Blogging Challenge twice or are invited by organizers. Students are welcome to get in touch if this appeals or they have questions.

  2. Hi there Team SBC,

    My name is Rob Kelly. I’m the Multimedia Learning Specialist at Berwick Lodge Primary School. I’ve been the school’s Digi-Tech Teacher since 2015, but before that I was a Grade 5/6 teacher. The great thing about my MLS job is that it’s varied. For example, today I’m producing the school radio show (for 97.7FM Casey Radio), but tomorrow I’ll be teaching students how to write code and build robots! The day after that, I’ll be running a STEM enrichment program. Pretty cool, right?!

    Outside of work, my hobbies include watching Netflix, chillin’ with mates and writing, too. I love writing. I think it’s a great way to reflect on one’s life. As I’m the Education Columnist for Star News (and various other online/print publications), I’m always having to put pen to paper – or in my case ‘fingers to keyboard’. It’s been a great way for me to develop my writing skills. (I’m in the middle of writing my first novel too, but “Shhhhh!” don’t tell anyone! It’ll be out later this year!)

    I can’t wait to be involved with the SB challenge.

    Rob Kelly
