Welcome back after what we hope has been an excellent summer holiday. If you are planning to use blogs for the first time, or you are looking at ideas to refresh your existing blogs, we’d like to remind you of a few of the great tools and resources available to you:
You can set up your own blog right here on Global2 – it’s free and there is no advertising for Victorian government and catholic schools – see the Quick Start guide for step-by-step instructions.
If you’ve set up your blog, but you’re not sure what to do next, read eduBlogger Kathleen Morris’s post on Blogging for Complete Beginners.
If you are already using or thinking about using student blogs, give yourself some start-of-the-year blogging inspiration at 100+ ideas and prompts for student bloggers, by the team at edublogs. This post provides prompts to inspire you and your students for a whole year of blogging.
And don’t forget to work through the guidelines on smart, safe and responsible use with your students.
Enjoy blogging in 2018!
