Hope you all enjoyed your holiday break. As you might have realised, I headed to Denver, Colorado where I presented about the student blogging challenge I run twice a year. I am hoping your classes will take part in term 4 when the next challenge begins in October.
Have you written a post to begin your new term?
Maybe you have been brave and tried a new tool for the blog. Here is one I can suggest: Padlet
What is a padlet?
It is a blank page where you can easily drag and drop video, text, images, sound, documents. Check out this tour of padlet.
What else is great is that it is free and you have total control over the amount of privacy of your padlet. According to their terms of service, children under 13 cannot create their own free padlets.
To get around this, they have also created a teacher monthly, annual or school plan. You can opt for $5 per month or $45 per year for an individual teacher and then each child can create their own padlets connected via you.
Here is an example of a padlet and I would like you and your students to add your ideas to it.
Just click on the plus sign, add your name as the title and then add your idea on the next line.
