1 Dec Tasks


Teaching and Learning with blogs This is the powerpoint I have just used if you want to look at it again.

Task 1 (please do this before you do anything else): Write a post.  You can choose one or both topics.

TOPIC 1:  What issues concern you about using blogs as teaching & learning tools?  How could you resolve those issues? 

TOPIC 2:   Would you rather be an elf or a reindeer?  Why?

When you finish click “publish” on the left sidebar.  Then read and comment on posts by two other bloggers.

Optional tasks: Choose one or all.  Finish today or in your own time.

  1. Write a post with a blogging task for your current class.  Have another look at my class blog for ideas if you want.  Think about what instructions they need – do they need to comment on your post, or write their own separate post.  You could include links or pictures.
  2. Let me know if you want to play with the technical aspects of running a blog – I can change your role temporarily so you can change the “Appearance”.  You can do this in pairs if you want.
  3. Or I can talk you through what administering the student blog involves.
  4. Look at the other blogs on the “Links” post.  Write a post about what you think of them.  Would you recommend them or not?  Include a link. 
  5. Start your own blogeither  linked to this one, or on a separate site.
