Edublogs Blogging Challenge: Week 7 Highlights

Lead the way, my friend.
Week 7: Leadership and Commenting Game Prep

This week’s activities are related to leadership. See Miss W’s original post for Week 7 for activity options. 

Prepare for next week’s COMMENTING GAME! 

One of the main reasons for the Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge is the opportunity for interaction with other students and classrooms around the world through commenting. Use the list below to prepare for participation in the game! (Looking at the list, you should only need to take care of a few items to be ready!)

 To take part in this game, all classes and students will need the following:

•  a user avatar if possible

• an ‘about me’ PAGE

• a clustrmap or flag counter widget

• at least four interesting posts – could be topics of your choice not necessarily from the challenge

• your ‘Recent Comments’ widget on the sidebar with 10 comments as the choice*

• your ‘Recent Posts’ widget on the sidebar with 10 posts as the choice *
*Go into Widgets on your Dashboard to change the settings on Recent Comments and Recent Posts widgets

• Your ‘Pages’ widget on the sidebar or pages in the header

posts categorized or tagged to make it easier to find interesting posts on each blog

• at least 10 student and/or classes linked on your blogroll

• at least three overseas blogs on your blogroll

The more students or classes you have linked on your blog, the more fun the game will be. The most important of these are the links to other student blogs on your sidebar. Try to have a couple of different headings like

My Friends
Class Blogs
Overseas Blogs
