The first Techie Brekkie for the year was held last Thursday morning (12th Feb) and was focused around Global2 Blogging. We broke into two groups in order to make the most of the allocated time and cover aspects suited to various ability levels from never blogged before to the more experienced blogger.
Group 1 looked at the blog composer. Using the toolbar to add a new post, formatting the text on a post and inserting media (primarily photographs or student work).
Group 2 explored how to add team members to the level blogs. We also explored how to best insert multiple images to a post using the Gallery function. Finally group 2 looked at various widgets that can be used in the blog sidebar. One of the most useful is the “subscribe via email” tool. This tool allows followers (parents and friends) to add their email address so that they automatically receive updates to the blog.
We look forward to a successful year of Techie Brekkies with lots of tech tips and tools being shared not just by the ICT team, but by all.
