It’s time to announce the winners of “Share your tips–and win BIG!” and a big thanks to everyone who entered.
Here’s the winners with a brief summary of why they won:
Gail Desler has extensive experience in both student blogging and supporting others educators in the use of blogs with their students. She submitted three posts for the competition that all are ‘must read’ posts packed full of advice on blogging with students which is why I’ve decided all three posts are winning posts:
- Five Tips for Teachers New to Blogging
- Five Tips for Helping Students Become Better Bloggers
- Five Borrowed Tips for Helping Students Become Better Bloggers
The posts they submitted are so ‘must read’ that it would be an honor if they guest posted their posts here on The Edublogger
Considering their ages and the fact I’ve never approached anyone ever to guest post on The Edublogger gives you an indication of how incredible the posts by these student bloggers are:
- Starting Out Blogging (Abbey’s post)
- Edublogs Advice (Lauren’s post)
- Le blogging défi de Sue Waters…. (Dominique’s post)
Carla Arena is a Brazilian EFL teacher who supports other educators learning how to blog through programs like “Blogging For Educators“. Her Blogging with Students in 5 Tips post highlights the importance of connecting your student bloggers to a global multicultural audience.
Dave Mendall’s 5 Important Tips for Blogging with Students post provides a timely reminder of need to keep it simple, remain focused, lower your expectations, embrace the unexpected and don’t give up!
Danielle Maley wrote a clever poem explaining early childhood educators can use blogs with their students while providing student blogging tips. And Mrs Harvey shows us how she explains to her different classes what they can post on their blogs.
While Sheri Edwards and Peter Vogel both shared the challenges, and what worked, with student blogging:
Gregory Stringer has helped us by providing a few of his “secrets” for blogging and joining social networking sites.
Sarah Korlaki and Karen Barnstable challenge us by asking their ’5 most important questions they would like to answered by experienced bloggers.’ I love these types of questions (and the answers) because they give you lots of post ideas.
- What I really want to know about blogging (Sarah’s post)
- Five Questions I would like to ask Experienced Bloggers (Karen’s post)
And most importantly Jess tells us why as a student she loves blogging!
Congratulations to all winners!
