This workshop was attend by five schools that each brought at least three pupils destined to be their digital leader for blogging in their school.
The digital leaders will be sharing school news, debates, they will listen to what our peers want us to blog about and they will lead the blog posts in their own specific Digital leaders area. They are going to use blogging as a tool to improve English skills. They know we will have to try our very best with their writing as the audience is the potentially the whole of the world wide web.
The feedback from the pupils and staff was fab and they were all looking forward to going back into school to share their knowledge.
Last week was St Joseph’s year6 blogging workshop, this weeks its year5’s turn. They’ve not done alot of blogging previously and were keen to share their very best writing linked to their WW2 topic. Click here to see their blog comments.
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.
Be prepare for year3 bloggers at Brownlow Fold.
Today saw the children using their class blog for the first time – they shared their topic learning all about the Egyptians they particularly like the mummification process!
They can not wait to share their very best writing with the whole wide world. Can you leave a comment of encouragement?
