Day 20 of 20 Days to BlogTastic - Student Voice
Yes this is the last challenge in 20 days to BlogTastic. If you'd like to know more about this training click here.
Today we're wrapping up with ensuring your blog has student voice. I've included a few more ideas for making it easier for you and your students to post to your class blog and a bit of challenge to look at creating individual student blogs in the future.
Use the blogger app which is available for Android and iOS. Make your students authors on your class blog using their email address, they then use this same email address to login to the blogger app and they can post from almost anywhere.
If you're in a situation where students have access to extensive wifi when they're around the school and to mobile data when they're out on trips this is a great way to get blog posts up and finished even before you've returned from the trip.
A great way to get evidence of learning from your students is to use a photo collage app. Most of these apps will export a file to your camera role so that you can add it to a blog post just like you would any other photo.
The basic idea of photo collages is to get a variety of photos onto one page and then save that page as an image. This way you can upload all of your photos as one just like this post from the Marvellous Meerkats today:
PicCollage is available on iOS (iPads, iPods, iPhones) and Android (Samsung, Nexus etc.) just note the rating on it - you need to supervise students on this app.
Here's a few apps and sites you might like to try for creating collages and photo displays.
- PicCollage ios (note 12+ Rating), Android
- PicFrame ios, Android (note paid app)
- Photo Collage Unlimited ios
- Photo Grid Collage Maker Android
