In the previous video I showed you how
to use the blog function in PebblePad. It could be that a professor is giving you
a workbook to work from, a set of templates that you’re working from, and
one of those templates they may be asking for is the blog function as a way
of collecting reflections for their class. So I’ll show you an example here
from a professor Sykes class for civic innovation. Here’s a you see the
templates he’s providing all the students in his class will have access
to a a workbook that where he lists prompts, we see here’s prompt number one
and then we’ll go to blogs and we see here’s our our blog template. We can add
an existing blog if we’ve been working on other blogs that are applicable to
this class you can simply select them and they’ll pop up just like that but
more often not you’ll be adding a blog from scratch. This will give you the
banner and a blank blog page and starting with the banner you can
customize, give it a title… type your description, which doesn’t mean
that your first post goes in here but this is simply a a title for your blog
so we’ll call this the civic innovation blog and then we’ll add to the blog. If
you saw the previous video I just go over quickly what the template function
is and adding an existing asset just… but the by far the most common when is
adding the posts, so reference those the previous video if you want to learn more
about these two functions but again the most common is simply adding a post. Place to put a title, something clear a
clear identifier for your instructor so when they go back through they know
exactly which one they’re reading for, and then where you can post, mess with
the with the font. You can link additional PebblePad assets that you’ve
already uploaded or are going to upload, or you can link out to other websites
just whatever useful resources that you may want to provide on your post.
Remember to save It, as it doesn’t have PebblePad doesn’t have the auto save
feature but this big blue button just hit continuously and you can keep a
little update for your instructor they’ll see the latest the most recent
version when they go back and grade it, and they you can keep adding. Say you have weekly reflections, each
week we’ll go back you’ll simply add to your post. And when you are the
instructor you go back and you pull up the students work, you see what they’ve
titled their blogs to the patient blog. But here’s what we’re here for,
we want to repost one. We want to repost to give grades and get feedback for
these posts, so there’s not much difference between the the portfolio
version of the blog function and the template version of the blog function,
but it’s just when a student or when an instructor I’m sorry prompts you to post
blogs you’ll know where to where to click, how to add that blog, and then how
to keep keep adding to your to your blog role to your, most likely, reflections
that they’re being your instructors are asking you to complete thank you.
