Every year, students participate in a Blogging Bingo challenge to inspire them to write on their blogfolios more often. Right now, all students posts things to their blogfolios that their teachers ask them to; some students independently write posts of their choosing; and some students want to write more but don’t know what to write.
In an effort to inspire and spark creativity while also building new tech and media literacy skills, we have created this Blogging Bingo Challenge.
Students can work on this challenge throughout the whole year. There are some rules, though….obviously!
- All posts must follow our guidelines of what makes a quality post in order to be counted towards the challenge
- All comments must follow the guidelines of what make a quality comment
- Writing and drawings cannot be rushed just to complete the task
And for added incentive, here are the prizes!
5 posts – free Gotcha!
10 posts – Homework Pass or Teacher for the Period
Whole board – Chapters Gift Card]
We did it! We completed the Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge. Hopefully you had a chance to read some of the students’ posts. If not, the joy of blogs is that it’s never too late to go and have a look, since their work is always there 🙂 You can use the menu on the right hand side to find that blog you’d like to read.
Now that the challenge is over, we will be continuing to add to our blogs in school as we complete different tasks. Students will have voice and choice about what they blog about, and what work they include. Some of them will go above and beyond to write about…whatever they want!
For those who want to write more but need a little inspiration, I’ve created this Blogging Bingo Homework Challenge. The tasks on here are completely optional. They will not replace the other homework we get on a weekly basis. But there’s incentive to completing them!
So when you have some extra time, when you want to practice a skill we’ve been working on in school (academic or otherwise), blog about it!
