UPDATE 11 February 2015: We sent out the first of the Teacher Challenge emails today! If you didn’t receive the email, please contact us directly at [email protected]

We’re excited to kick-start the first Teacher Blogging Challenge of 2015!

Whether you are new to blogging, or want a refresher on all of the features that blogging can offer, come join us for our four week crash-course as we guide you through the process of blogging with students.

We’ll cover:

  • Setting up class and student blogs
  • Teaching quality comments and posts
  • Working with widgets
  • Images, copyright, and creative commons
  • Connecting with other classes
  • Tons more!

How Does It Work?

The Edublogs Teacher Challenge is completely free of charge.

Each Teacher Challenge session lasts for 30 days, with 2-3 tasks per week that will be sent to you via email. We’ll send the first challenge to you on February 9th.

When you finish the Teacher Challenge, we’ll give you a badge to proudly display on your blog and a certificate of completion which you can use towards  your professional development hours.

You can use any blogging platform you prefer, but our detailed instructions will be written with Edublogs and CampusPress users in mind, so you’ll need to slightly adapt them depending on your platform.

Enroll For Free Now!

Enroll by filling out this Google form. (Form has been disabled 11 February 2015, as the challenge has started. If you want to be added, please email [email protected]).
The Teacher Challenge series begins on February 9th and is excellent way of preparing for the Student Blogging Challenge which starts in March.

  10. I would like to learn but I am a very busy person. Completing 2-3 tasks per week sounds like a lot (it depends!) for me with my busy schedule. Could they be submitted at the end of the week or arranged flexibly so that I could pick my own time to do them?
