Struggling to get your students, class or educational establishment into blogging?
Have no fear-let’s blog the leap year!
What better way to explain Blog the Leap Year than use the words from the website itself-
“Feb29th.net is a global blogging project that will cross all age groups and continents. As soon as Feb 29th 2012 begins in Tonga, the Feb29th.net will open up for posts for one day only. This blog will capture posts from all over our planet on this rare day until midnight in the Western Pacific. The result will not only be a celebration of technology, but a celebration of audience and purpose.
The aim is to allow any visitor on 29th Feb to post; these will be moderated on the day, as this will also be open to pupils in educational establishments across the globe.
Together, we will prove that blogging is safe and there really is POWER in the audience!“
I’m encouraging all educators from around the globe, whatever age-group, to take up this challenge.You don’t need a blogging platform, a website or an account.
All you need is a keyboard and a connection to the internet.
Feb29th.net is a reason to write a blog, a willing audience to write for and a subject to write about.
This is a perfect opportunity to showcase why blogging is the future of writing in education.www.ideasfactory.me/about/"rel="author"
