Today we held the second of our Digital Leader workshops – the focus today was blogging. St Andrews are early awaiting their new school blog and attended todays workshop so then they will be prepared to start blogging once their site goes live, in the meantime they are practicing in our training blog.
First we discussed why it is good to blog, to share school life and improve their writing.
As a blogging digital leader they will be setting the example of what excellent blogging looks like. They will also be able to set up blog posts for children to comment on, this could be on anything from fundraising events, special learning days, really any event that happens in school or on the news.
Below are some screen shots of their first blogs, keep an eye on what they are blog about here and maybe you could leave a comment. All comments are moderated before going live.
Stand back everyone!
