Online Bulletin Board

Edublog Challenge 5 is up-and-running. The focus this week is on developing the visual aspects of your blog. Since we already know how to add images to our blogs we’ll focus on the following:

1. Content  (activity 8)  In the coming weeks our class will be  taking  part in a schoolwide project on the theme of Good Manners. As our contribution, we’ll be producing digital comic strips about ethical and polite behaviors on the internet. By Nov. 10th, each blogger must publish an original  comic strip using digital technology. Your task this week is to experiment with ways of producing your strip and then to choose the one that best suits your project. Later in the week you will post a brief discussion of your experience. For inspiration, here is an example of  Bob Online‘s work for his Blog Action Day project with Tom Online.

2. Photo attribution (Activity 10)  Your second task is to return to each of the images on your blog and replace the general Photo Credit information with a specific Creative Comments reference.
