Before filling in the registration form please read the following:
Who should register
- Only students who have their own personal blog can register
- Students who are going to do the activities otherwise mentors’ time is wasted *** this one is very important
- Students who want to connect with other students around the world
- Register only once – I can usually work out incorrect URLs by visiting class blogs or contacting teachers
A few days after you have registered
- Check the student participants page which will appear in the header area to make sure you are there. Check very carefully under your age group as we don’t need names being doubled up – again that would be wasting time of the mentors.
- 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 students your age or with your interests.
- Fill in the subscription by email so you are notified when posts are published each week – first challenge will be March 5 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 start leaving comments.
If you have a twitter account, use the hashtag #17stubc to notify others of your posts
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.
If you and your friends are going to take part in the student blogging challenge, beginning in mid- September, then please fill in the Google form below. Remember to come back here to check out the activities once they are posted.
Tell your teacher that you are taking part in the challenge as well.
The time has arrived for students to register their personal blogs if they are taking part in the student blogging challenge for March 2010. Please register only once and check a couple of days later that your name and blog is on the page to the right called ‘March 2010 students’. If your name is not there, I will have taken it off because you had a wrong URL most likely.
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?
