Allowing a time to collaborate and build ICT capacity

Session 1: Posts and Comments


Now you have your blog, let’s get into some of the fun stuff…

What is a post?

Posts are where you’ll publish your main content such as what’s been happening in your classroom. They are displayed in reverse-chronological order with the most recent post at the top of the page. Your posts are the way in which you add new information, photos or videos to your blog. A good post usually has an open-ended question at the end which requires people to respond and leave comments.

How do I know what to post about?

Have a look at this great video for some good ideas…

Here is a detailed description with tutorial videos on how to make your first post.

What is a ‘quality’ comment?

Teaching children to make quality comments is an important part of educational blogging. It reinforces important literacy skills and allows for meaningful conversations to occur through your blog. Have a read of Katheen Morris’ informative article on the importance of quality commenting and how to teach commenting skills here.

What is your new blog URL so we can add it to our ‘links’ widget?
