Re: Mentor a New Blogger

Mr. Whelan's class wants to do what you know how to do.

You become the "Master", they become the "learner."

What would you do to teach a new blogger to blog?

How about this for a workflow?

Build your team->decide on a rollout strategy for new bloggers->write and give a presentation to Grade 8s to introduce iBlogs->write some introductory turorial posts to get them started or special tips or tricks->monitor their progress->answer their questions in the forums as well->they may need some help there too.

Start small. Pick your team, present, select a few new bloggers at first to mentor, then let them all have at it.

Oh, and I have a page that shows all "googleable" iblogs.
