Here we go! Miss W just posted the first student blogging challenge of 2016 so let’s get started.
Activity 1 Avatars * optional *
If you’d like to create a new avatar, feel free to try out one of Miss W’s suggestions. Don’t forget to save the image as a jpg on your USB key (or meet me in the lab at lunch).
Activity 2 About Me * obligatory *
It’s time to give your About Me a make over.
Step 1 Create a rich profile that includes:
a. the basics (i.e. blog name, age, grade, school, location, family, languages spoken)
b. an engaging and personalized blurb (i.e. passions, interesting facts, hope and dreams)
c. a description of what readers will find on your blog including the dual purposes of the blog (i.e. assignments vs. free writing) as well as the types of posts
Step 2 Evaluate the About Me of your Blog Squad classmates and consider their feedback on yours.
