Sydney and Canberra Lets Have Fun!

Lets go to Canberra and visit the tall halls of government house, swim in the AIS, look at view  on Mt Ainslie’s lookout, paint the images in our minds from the National Portrait Gallery and take a ride on the vertical slide at Questacon. We’re going to Manly at Sydney, fly on the Sky Safari at Taronga, explore Darling Harbor and walk along the golden sands of Bondi Beach.

I have just spent a couple of hours introducing blogging to students in grade 4/5 Hortle and grade 6 Grace. The students listened well and learnt a lot about being safe on the internet as well as being good digital citizens.

Here are some of the things we discussed:

  • What is a blog and how it differs from a website – we watched a video from the last post on our blog
  • What is a URL and how to find your class blog by using the URL
  • Logging in to the class blog
  • Changing their profile – first name only no surnames at all
  • Changing password – make sure it is medium or strong and includes little letters, capital letters, numbers and characters – at least 8 in total
  • How to write a new post and include an image or video
  • How to leave a comment without logging in – need to know email address and anti spam word, first name only again
  • How to leave a comment when logged in
  • Adding categories and tags

What to do now:

  1. Log into your class blog
  2. Change your profile
  3. Leave a comment on a post
  4. Write your own post and submit it for review

As a class we need to make an ‘About Us’ page to introduce our class to the world.

We also learnt about these three blogs

Mrs Hortle’s class blog

Mrs Grace’s class blog

Sue’s student blog

Students: Time to comment –

What are some things you need to be careful about when blogging? What makes you internet safe or a good digital citizen?

Welcome to Term 3, 2017

This term we will be having a focus on ICT and in particular, the art of blogging.

A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or diary. It is a place to express yourself to the world. A place to share your thoughts and your passions. For our purposes we’ll say that a blog is like our own website that we are going to update on an ongoing basis.

I think it will be a fantastic opportunity to share some of the great work our class have been doing and also to interact with other classes throughout Australia, and indeed the world.

Time to leave a comment:

Our class blog is your chance to have a voice and say in what we do. What topics are you passionate about and would like to share with others? Coding, wombats, star wars are just a few that come to mind. This is your chance to share your passion with others!
