This January we have joined another Quad and will be blogging with 3 more schools from around the world!
Our new link schools are:
Quadblogging is based on an idea by David Mitchell, Acting Headteacher at Heathfield CPS.
Our link schools this year are:
“Imagine four schools that had a partnership/agreement that would mean that for a four week cycle, each school’s blog would be the focus for one week out of four. Each school in the Quad would spend some time visiting the blog of the school for that week, leave comments etc. After that week, another one of the four schools would be the focus and this would be repeated for the four week cycle and then repeated. It wouldn’t take the pupils long to work out that during their week, they would get a boost in visitor numbers and comments. This would give a real focus to have posts online ready for this bulge in visits. During the other three weeks, pupils get to visit and comment on other blogs in their quad. Pupils being pupils, they would also venture out of the quads and visit other blogs that are linked.”
I took part in Quad Blogging last year and found it was a great way for children to connect with children in other classrooms and share their learning. I am really looking forward to working with our new quad this year!
