We are delighted to announce dates for our annual year end update courses. These are both popular and important courses for school bloggers as they allow you to get your class blogs, teacher logins and children logins organised for the new school year with an expert on hand to guide you through the process. It is important to note that your annual hosting fee does not include setting up blogs and logins for September.
There are 3 options for setting up your blogs for next year:
- Work through the step-by step year end guide yourself – link here (free, just your time)
- Attend a course (£75)
- Book John to do the updates for you (£250 + travel, or £350 if including a refresher staff meeting)
Auto Updating Your Blog
In the last year we have been trying lots of different tools to explore ways that you can update your blog automatically from lots of different sources such as Twitter, Instagram, Audioboom etc. These tools and methods have the capability of saving lots of teacher time as well as making your blog a much more effective communication tool. To share these skills the morning of the update day will be used to demonstrate how simple it is to integrate your blog with a wide range of social media and other tools.
