Blogging 2012

Welcome everyone to the Senior Primary blog!

Many of the students are already experienced bloggers, and will be passing on their skills to the Grade 5s who are trying it for the first time.  Be good teachers! Remember to let the newbies have a go themselves, however tempted you may be to do it all for them.

Next month we’ll be joining the Global challenge, and tackling some new tasks this year as well as some that you may have done before.  There will be plenty of choice in the tasks I’m told.  See if you can find time in class to follow up on comments and build links with some schools in other parts of the world.  I’ll be moderating (checking and approving) all comments, so you won’t have to worry about safety issues, though we will be talking a lot about that too.

Blogging can be such fun, and allows us to connect with people all over the world. 

What do you think of blogging?  Is it scary to publish to the world or challenging to learn how to do it?
