What is a Blog?

So what is a Blog? Well a Blog is an on-line website where children can access, exchange and receive information from myself, their classmates and from other people around the world.

We can use the Blog to:
  • Share resources and access on-line learning activities
  • Share and celebrate students work and learning
  • Provide up to date information on what is happening in Savvy 7
  • Communicate with parents and the wider world
  • Provide opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom
  • Learn new ICT skills
  • Provide motivation, excitement and fun!!
As you can see the Blog is an amazing tool which has huge potential to enhance children’s learning.
For more information on blogs, this video clip is an excellent, simple explanation of what blogs are all about. Check it out!


These are Savvy 7's Blogging Guidelines:

  • Blogs are in a public space, be proud of anything that you write or post.
  • Always write in full sentences and words.
  • Always check your spelling and sentences before you publish a comment or post. If you are publishing a post make sure you get a teacher to check it as well.
  • Only use first names when writing.
  • Never write any of your personal information, e.g. your phone number or address.
  • Report any silly comments to a teacher straight away.
  • Always ask permission before posting a photo.
