Mrs. D enjoyed working with Mrs. Treptow on setting up her classroom blog and teaching her students the importance of blogging skills. Before you share your thoughts on a classroom blog (or anywhere online for that matter), remember these important “Blogging Rules”
1. Remember, do not share personal information like your full name, email address, home address or phone number.
2. Stay on topic when you are blogging or commenting on other blogs.
3. Do your best work – Make sure you check your spelling, spacing, capitalization and overall grammar.
4. Be Kind or Be Quiet – in other words, stay positive in your posts and comments to other’s posts.
What you say leaves a “digital footprint” and will follow you for many years….Here is an excellent website that discusses this important topic – http://www.kidsmart.org.uk/digitalfootprints/
