6. Provide resources for pupils

As well as sharing resources from around the web a blog can be a centre for flipped learning, a place for pupils to help each other anytime and to remind them of homework tasks!

  • Provide resources for anytime learning or the flipped classroom.
  • Pupils can access files and resources from home.
  • Share files or embed media, video and audio resources
  • Share links to other suitable educational content.
  • Promote online discussion amount learners.
  • Organise resources by categorising or tagging posts.

Tip, informal homework, ask a question in a post, turn on moderation of all comments and wait till all pupils have had a chance to answer.

  1. HI there,

    The children in my class have now all created their e-portfolios. Can you please advise how they can view and comment on each other’s posts? I have ploughed my way through several of the online training documents and it looks as if I should create a glow group of which all the class will be members.

    Is this how it should be done????

    Thank you

    1. Hi Mrs Kelly,
      You need to do a couple of things:
      1. Make sure the pupils have permission to see each others blogs.
      2. Give them a way to access the blogs.

      The first can be done by either getting pupils to add all of their class mates as subscribers to the blog or by making the blog Glow Only rather than private. The second, Glow Only, option is simpler to set up: Privacy Settings

      The for the second you need to collect the links and have a place where the pupils can access these. Many people use a O365 Sharepoint site (Glow group) for this. You can set up a subsite on your school site where pupils can add their links to a weblinks web part.

      You could also share the links on a blog, or in a shared Word Document.
      There is a bit more information here: e-Portfolios: keeping track of blogs which covers using a blog as a hub where children can share links.
