As usual the GlowMeet will take place at 2pm this afternoon:
The weeks program:
Technical Blogrolls AKA Link lists
We will look at how to add a link list to the side of our blogs.
Link lists can be used to provide links or sets of links for all sorts of purposes.
For class blogs they are particularly useful for linking to other classes that you may become involved with or giving your pupils quick access to resources for learning.
It is probably a good idea to start thinking about Community now.
Community is very important in blogging but less formal than in other online learning spaces.
Think about who your blogging friends are. Who you should have on your link role. With class blogging it can be very powerful to make informal links, usually via comments with other like minded bloggers. This can be local or at the other side of the world.
You can also find a list of the home page for each LA which in turn will list the 40 most recently updated blog here: Glow Blog Links
Here are couple of lists of blogs that are elsewhere in the world.
Some of the links will be dead by now, but some will still be active. The second list has some details about the classes involved
Find some inspiration.
Visit some other class blogs, see if you can find something interesting that you could blog about or give a response to.
Blog about this, linking to the post that inspired.
Remember to categorise you posts bootcamp.
We will have a two week break from the bootcamp for the Easter holidays. After today the next week will begin: 20th April 2015
