Student Blogging Challenge Week 1

As part of our student blogging challenge this week, we were asked to create avatars of ourselves.

In our class, we don’t always have access to devices so we had to wait until Thursday afternoon to have a go at this task. We made our avatars using Reasonably Clever, Manga and Doppel Me.

It was our first time learning new skills when making and saving the avatars. We learnt how to Print Screen, crop an image and save it to the correct folder.

Here are our avatars below. What do you think?

What did you enjoy the most about making an avatar? Which site did you use? Why did you make your avatar look the way it does?

Student Blogging Challenge 2015

The Learning Lizards are participating in the March 2015 Student Blogging Challenge. It is our first time (and Miss Fraser’s) participating in the blogging challenge.

The challenge is co-ordinated by Miss W. You can visit the website here.

The Week 1 Challenge looks at how to connect with people:

“Whenever you meet a new person or join a group, there are three things you will most likely do.

  1. Look at the outside view of the person – do they look like the type of person you would enjoy being with?
  2. Then you would go deeper by asking some basic questions about the person and their interests.
  3. Finally, you would connect through shared interests.”

On Thursday, during our time with the netbooks, we will be taking the first step and creating our avatars to add to our blog. Miss Fraser would also like to create a Voki character for our class. We got the idea from Mrs Amri and The Crew. They are Second Graders from Oregon, USA and are brilliant bloggers! After we have created our avatars, we will share them with our viewers.

What should our class Voki say about our class? Why do we blog? What are you hoping to get out of the Student Blogging Challenge and what are you looking forward to the most?
