Are you looking for a learning opportunity for yourself and/or your students?
Become a Student blogging challenge helper!
The Student Blogging Challenge needs teams of helpers who are willing to comment on class and student blogs for the duration of the Challenge (finishes end of November).
We would like to do is allocate 5 class blogs and 10 student blogs to each willing helper.
The more helpers the better!
Currently we already have 253 individual student blogs and 65 class blogs participating from twelve countries (USA, Austalia, New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico, South Africa, Spain, Hong Kong, Canada, Scotland, Thailand, Venezuela). You can check out the Challenge participant list here!
Benefits for you!
This is an ideal chance for teachers and preservice teachers (student teachers) to:
- Increase their understanding of how blogs can be used with students
- Observe the impact blogging can have on student learning
- Investigate the different approaches to class and student blogging
It’s also perfect for students and classes that aren’t in the position to be a Challenge participant but would like to be involved in a less formal manner.
A key benefit is commenting is an important part of blogging. It’s often where most learnng happens. Unfortunately most people find commenting more challenging than writing posts.
Being a helper will increase your commenting skills while giving you (or your students) opportunities to practice.
