Posting comments

I have written a comment about a post on my class blog and I think it is waiting for moderation. How do I do this so the students can read the comment? Please help!


I've been told about Fotobabble so I'm just testing it out. Hopefully a photo with a comment will appear or a link to something...not sure yet.

Had a great lesson on blogging today. Getting my class blog up and running. Room 17 Superstars. Still very confused about all the accounts, usernames and passwords but this time I wrote them down. A lesson learned from when I first started on this ICT journey.

The class blog will be a place that the students will eventually take ownership of and be uploading their own work, reflecting on their work and that of their peers. First they will learn how to use vocaroo to record themselves reading from a book at their reading level. Using vocaroo will develop the students fluency.

ULearn10 Christchurch - presenting with colleagues - scary thought!!
Spent several hours today discussing ideas to present at a national ICT conference. What have I got to offer? What can I possibly teach other people? Everything I know has been done before and by more experienced people. Will our submission be accepted? Watch this space....

Action Research

Year 2010 brings new adventures in my e-learning. This year I will be undertaking an Action Research project incorporating e-learning tools into my classroom programme. The students will be uploading work onto their class blog. Room 17 Superstars

Things I wasn't aware of when starting a blog -
- ANOTHER password!!!!
- that my class needed their own email address!
- each student needs to know how to 'log in'
- there also wasn't a 'dashboard' on the class blog.....I thought they only came in cars!

Eventually I'll get my head around all of this.
