Hi Everyone (again!),
Today, we talked about what we should have on our blog so far for term 3. We have started a lot of different blog posts and pages in class, with time to discuss, ask for help and to draft our posts. However, not everyone has actually posted all of the things we have started.
This term, we are expecting everyone to continue posting things on their blog. We will continue to give you time to draft pieces at school (within reason) and you will always have time to ask for help if you need to. However, if you don’t finish something in class, or don’t get something posted, you will be required to complete the posting at home, as homework. Without me explicitly having to ask you to.
I feel that this is an important thing for everyone to be learning about. It’s about being organised. It’s about taking responsibility for your learning. It’s about you developing a digital footprint on your blog, that you can (and should be!) proud of.
It’s about you following the blogging rubric we developed as a class, which should be on your blog (or on your netbook at least!).
If you were absent for something, like a talk or an excursion we have blogged about, then of course you don’t have to complete this blog. If you missed the start of something that we have continued over a few days in class, like our Amazing Race pages, then you will need to complete these. This is all part of you being responsible for your learning and your blogging.
Here is the Excel document we worked on this afternoon.
I haven’t highlighted anyone’s columns yet, I will start doing this over the weekend. Most of you have completed bits and pieces of these tasks.
If you’re not sure about a blogging task, have a look at some other student blogs (from 5A and 5B too!) and see if you can work it out. If you’re still not sure- have a go! We can always change things to the right place if we need to or delete things. Use the blogging criteria documents to help you.
Remember, there are special privileges for people who complete all tasks to their personal 10/10, like changing themes, pictures, adding widgets, Voki or even a pet.
