ATL Area: Communication
ATL Skill: Use appropriate forms of writing for different purposes and audiences
A great way to communicate online is by creating a blog. Blogging is like writing a diary, where you can see a development of thoughts over time. A blog allows you to provide information for other people and share opinions regarding the work you have been doing in class. It is also a great way to identify appropriate writing styles for different audiences. Tip: You can also upload videos and pictures into your blog!
Create a blog using a popular blogging platform. A good one to begin with is Blogger as it is linked to your school email account. You can access Blogger by visiting www.blogger.com and logging in with your school email log in details.
Your blog should contain:
– Posts that reflect on what you have learned in class by offering insights into what worked well and what you would change in future
– Links to websites that you have used to help you learn
