FAQs about Blogs
What is a blog?
A blog is like a diary or journal that is published on the internet, similar to a website. Postings are updated frequently and they can be accessed from any internet-enabled computer. They are great for students as they can be worked on at anytime, including from home. A blog can have comments by people other than the author, photos, videos, links and other digital media.
Who writes the blog posts?
The teachers will write blog posts about various things happening around the school. Ms Sieira (Media-Arts teacher) will publish the blog posts. Students may be chosen to write guest posts on the blog, which Ms Sieira will approve and publish.
Who can comment?
Anyone can comment on a blog. All comments are filtered through to the teachers, who will review the posts. The comments will either be published, edited or deleted. This will be up to teacher reviewing the comment’s discretion.

How will the school blog be used at school?
