The bootcamp will take you through creating a blog, adding features and a range of blogging activities. Classes will have the opportunity to link up with other glow blogs and the world wide blogging community.
It will run from Week beginning 31 August for 5 weeks.
Each week there will be ‘technical’ tips, blogging challenges and discussion points that can be carried out in your classroom and on your blog.
What you need: A Class, somewhere to blog (glow for example). No technical knowledge needed.
While most of the technical support will be aimed at glow users the bootcamp is open to anyone.
After feedback from the first blogging bootcamp we have changed this one a little. There will now be two Glow Meets every week. One aimed at classroom learners where we will attempt to be more interactive and a second aimed at staff which will be a bit more technical.
We hope that the resources for the bootcamp will be adaptable enough so that you can take part without attending the Glow Meets if the timing does not suit.
The bootcamp is aimed at classes but some participants in the previous series found it useful as an introduction to blogging in general.
Some of the information will be ‘old hat’ if you are already blogging, the challenges will hopefully still give you something to blog about and provide an opportunity to network with other classes.
