We have just completed a ten week Student Blogging Challenge.
Participating in this international challenge was hard work.
It was challenging sometimes to get our ‘homework’
handed in by the end of the week,
but it improved our blogging skills and our blog.
and brought us into contact with other students blogging
all over the world.
We learned many skills on this challenge but the one that had
most impact was learning how to use Compfight to access
images relevant to our work quickly while observing
the rules of copyright. This has made a big different to our
blog as you can see if you compare our work before we learnt
how to use Compfight in
at the end of March 2013 and the quality and amount of images
we used before that.
The Student Blogging Challenge is run twice a year and is
co-ordinated by a very busy and dedicated
former teacher from Hobart, Tasmania.
As you can see from this link, we received an honourable
mention for our work: Student Blogging Challenge 2013 – Great Blogging Posts
We would recommend the Student Blogging Challenge wholeheartedly
as enjoyable, educational and a way to connect with other students who blog globally.
