We did it! We signed up for the Student Blogging Challenge! Each week we will have a new task to complete as participants of the challenge. This week the challenge was to create or update an “About Me” page on our blogs. Since many of the students had already accomplished this task, it gave us an opportunity to edit, revise, and evaluate our About Me pages.
The students used an app from the Google Store called My World to add interest to their page. They created their world, took a screenshot, and then described it on their About Me page. Not only does this app allow you to drag items into the canvas that describe you and your personaility, but it also analyzes these items and gives the creator some feedback regarding their interests. The program tells you the type of person you are and suggests some fields of study for when you attend college. We had fun using this app!
Here’s an example:
Please click on our Student Blogs located on the right-hand side of the page to view some of the About Me pages created by the students. Look for the “About Me” tab located on the top of their Home Page.
Have you created an About Me page? If so, what web tools have you used to make your page interesting?
