BLOG or SITE

Create a Website or Blog to show your work

As we will be working remotely, you will need to create an online presence for yourself. Depending on what technology you have available, this could be a Blog or a Website.

Blogs can be created from your phone. I created this one in about 5 minutes using my phone. If you have a gmail account, Blogger is the easiest, but you can choose any you want. (Just make sure it is NOT used for things beside school, as I do NOT want to see your regular social media feeds!)

If you prefer to build a website, here are 10 options for free websites. Again you can use any you like, but it should NOT be used for things beside school work.

STEP 1

Set up the Blog or Website, give it a unique name and customize it. Add some photos or graphic designs to the Blog or Site if you can.

NOTE:

If you have other teachers asking you to do the same, I will be OK if you ‘double dip’ and use the same Blog or Site, as long as the other teacher is OK with it as well.

STEP 2

Create your first post or page, this should reflect our current situation, include at least FIVE photos and answer the questions below in written, drawn, or photo format. If you are doing it visually, include captions

  • What does social distancing look like for you?
  • How are you spending your time?
  • What ‘strange’ things have you noticed (in parks, shopping, transit, streets etc.)?
  • How are you staying connected with your network of people?

STEP 3

Send me a link to your Blog or Page, or add me as a subscriber rmehl@vsb.bc.ca, and make sure i get a notification when you update, so I can give you feedback and evaluation
