It is my intention to post my presentation on my blog, but will do so in early October following our presentations at the ULearn conference. That said, as it is now just over half way through the term, its a good time to reflect on the blog commenting challenge which is occurring in my class this term. So far there have been 182 comments posted (majority by whanau) and our progress graph as of today looks like this:
We continue to share comments in class which helps to serve as a reminder about the challenge. I'm also seeing some of my learners starting to comment on their friends blogs in the evenings/weekends. My learners continue to be excited about blogging and many come to school early so they can check their comments before class starts - those that can't quite read their own comments are particularly keen to do this as they know I'm happy to read them before we start our day.
I'm excited to see if the blog commenting continues over the second half of the term and if we can push the total comments closer to 300 before the challenge concludes!
