Assignments will be posted weekly on the Home Page. Alternatively, check the recent posts on the right hand side.
- Once you complete the assignment, add it to your blog. Try to embed it into your post, but if this is not possible then include a link to your work.
- Explain your process. What tools did you use? Were they easy to use? What difficulties did you experience? Are the tools available in your school or place of work? Do you have any advice or tips for others? Suggest how this could be used in your subject area or in another subject area.
- Comment on other participants’ blogposts. Try to give constructive criticism and suggestions in a few sentences rather than a simple ‘great work!’.
- Tweet about your work and post it in the Facebook group. Remember to use the assignment’s hashtag.
- Don’t apologise or make excuses. We’re busy people and things will get in the way of our participation. We know that. Take as much as you like, give as much as you want.
