Student Blogging Challenge – Commenting

In this week 2 challenge students are asked to think about what it means to comment on blog posts.  I’ve found a few articles on the subject that might be of interest to readers.

I applaud the Student Blogging Challenge for bringing awareness to the importance of teaching commenting skills.  I’ve started a Padlet to share ideas on what goes into making a good blog comment. Feel free to add your comments.

Student Blogging Challenge 2015







Once again I have the privilege of participating as a mentor in the Student Blogging Challenge #sbc15.  The challenge has three parts: create an avatar,  update my all about me page and visit other blogs.

I’ve updated my student blog list and begun to visit them.   For this challenge I’ve a group of 15-year old students and I look forward to getting to know them. 

Sometime ago I was introduced to Tellagami.  “Animate your life. Tellagami is a mobile app that lets you create and share a quick animated video called a Gami.”  I’m excited to learn how I can use this tool in my job.

Samantha Morra at has some great ideas for using Tellagami in the classroom.

EdTechSandyK shared her thoughts on Tellagami.

Steve Woods has created a tutorial on how to create a gami.

Check out my gami and feel free to share ideas on how you might use these types of avatars.
