I am writing this post to review the Student Blogging Challenge. This is for the last challenge.
Q: Did you visit the actual challenge on the blog each week or did your teacher have a post on your class blog?
A: I visited the challenge site, but my teacher also usually showed the post for this week in class.
Q: Which challenges were the most useful?
A: I think the challenges that taught us to do things (like add a link or image attribution) were the most useful.
Q: Which challenges were the most interesting?
A: I think the ones that challenged us to do things like make a post or a glogster were the most interesting. Overall, the ones that were the most interactive.
Q: What would be some other topics you would like included in future challenges?
A: I don’t know.
Q: Are more tutorial type challenges needed? eg how to make a link in your post
A: I wouldn’t need them because the Challenge and my teacher Mrs.Hernandez taught me everything I really need to know.
Q: Were the ‘Visit these’ posts useful?
A: I liked them (considering I was mentioned about 3 times ), but I think they really weren’t useful.
Q: Were the challenges where you had to embed ie polls, cartoons, wallwisher etc interesting or could you not embed due to being a free Edublogs blog or a blogging platform that didn’t allow embedding?
A: They were interesting, and I could use them. But a problem I had is that I see all these cool widgets that other kids’ blogs’ have, and I can’t put them on my blog.
Q: Were there enough chances to visit blogs from overseas and make links with other students/classes?
A: Yes. A lot of other choices and it helped that you told us blogs to visit and comment on.
Q: Classes that registered – were there enough activities specific to classes?
A: Yes. My class (MJGDS 5th Grade) teachers took about 2 of the posts Miss W. wanted us to do and made us do them.
Q: Did you make global connections?
A: Definatly. I made connections with all the commenters on my blog and the Count Out Three game helped also.
