Student blogging guidelines
When you press PUBLISH, what you have written is instantly visible all around the world. Make sure you think carefully about what you write in blogs and in comments and always follow these rules.
Only use your first name.
Your Posts must not include yours or anyone’s personal details such as address, email address or phone numbers.
When writing about yourself don’t be specific. eg. Say: “I go to a local dance group ” rather than “I go to Mary’s Dance Studio”
You must have your teacher’s permission to post a photo
Always keep other people’s feelings in mind.
When commenting on what others have written show them that you have read it rather than just saying “great job”.
Be open to other people’s opinions, but be prepared to discuss your own position if you don’t agree.
You are broadcasting yourself to the world. Present yourself in the best possible light
Use good grammar, spelling and punctuation.
Save abbreviations and shortcuts for MSN and texting.
Remember you cannot use anything from the Internet and call it your own. Make sure you only use copyright free images, songs and text.
Parents who leave comments are asked to use their first names only
Posts written by students will be checked by the teacher before they are published to the blog
