Second semester students have created their blogs using Edublogs, specifically designed for educational purposes and they are linked to a blog roll of students on the Taft Library home page using the link Learning 2.0. Edublogs offers basic blogs for free and also Pro accounts that are paid. Edublogs has been created with opportunities to learn about many features throughout the semester as you are exploring Web 2.0 tools and learning.
This week you will be creating Avatars to personalize your blogs including a talking Voki. All of the lesson is included as Week 3: Avatars. Remember when you post to title each section such as “Activity 1, 2, etc.”
Remember to review Blogging Guidelines before making your post public.
