SBC Week 2: It’s all about the comments!
(Copied & edited from this weeks Student Edublog Challenge post)
Blogging is all about having your voice heard and connecting with others who might like to read and comment on what you have written. But as in many things we do, there are some protocols bloggers in schools like to follow.
Activity 1: Visit other student or class blogs
Visit 3 other blogs on the lists. Leave a quality comment on one post on each blog. Might be the ‘About Me’ page or another post you found interesting. Write a post on your blog mentioning who you visited, which post you left a comment on and why, then include the comment you left. Hint: make sure you copy the comment before you hit the submit button.
Activity 2: Make a set of commenting guidelines
Explain what you expect when someone leaves a comment on your blog.
- What type of comment is acceptable?
- Which type of comment will you put in the trash?
Here are some examples:
Huzzah commenting guidelines, a Glogster poster about commenting, WarriorKat used a variety of tools for her guidelines, notice how Sophie included a link back to Mrs Yollis’ blog where she got her information from, Emme created a PowToon, Darcey included some interesting points, Kyndal has her guidelines here
