This first post is for the Edublog Teachers Challenge.
Inspired by a colleague I recently dipped my toe into blogging by starting a class blog in August of 2010. This proved to be a huge success. The kids loved it and before long it became an integral part of our day. We got better at commenting on blogs and making quality comments whilst practicing being safe online and learning some basic netiquette guidelines. Every morning we would look at the cluster map and be thrilled with more visitors from around the world.
Having seen the success that a class blog can have on children’s learning, I decided it was time to ‘have a go at’ starting and maintaining my own blog. The edublog challenge will be a great way to start a blog and maintain it.
I look forward to connecting, sharing, commenting and having fun.
