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.

BE SAFE:

Do not use your last name.
Don’t be specific when writing about yourself. eg. Say: “I play basketball with a local team” rather than “I play for the Carlton Blues”.
Never give anyone your address, email address or phone number. You can keep in touch through the blog.
Do not post photos of others without their permission. (You may use images that Miss Wilson or Miss Jones has added into the media library only).

BE RESPECTFUL

Don’t say anything that might be offensive to someone else.
Be considerate of others. When commenting, show others that you have read what they have written 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.

BE LITERATE

You know about good grammar, spelling and punctuation. Apply it!
Save abbreviations and shortcuts for messenger apps.
You are broadcasting yourself to the world. Present yourself in the best possible light.

This is the link to our classroom blog where the students from room 36 are able to write posts about work that is covered in class. Students are able to comment on others blogs and are encouraged to give positive feedback where possible. A set of guidelines will be set in place regarding blogging etiquette.

FYI

THE WORD blog is a conflation of two words: Web and log. It contains in its four letters a concise and accurate self-description: it is a log of thoughts and writing posted publicly on the World Wide Web. In the monosyllabic vernacular of the Internet, Web log soon became the word blog.
