General Rules for the School Blog In order to keep access to these pages, all users are asked to: 1.Make comments on the topic and never make comments about students, staff, parents or the school (unless allowed by a teacher for a set activity) 2.Add images related to the topic and never upload images of people (except for historical persons studied) 3.Upload your own work and never upload files or content that is not your own...work. 4.Reference your sources (include a page number or hyperlink to the actual page used) and never breach copyright 5.Provide a star rating (based on the Web Evaluation Criteria) for all websites referred and / or linked to 6.Respect the content of others and never interfere with the content of others 7.Keep your comments educational and factual and never make personal comments or give opinion 8.Think before you post (http://www.teachertube.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=660&title =Think_Before_You_Post ) 9.Do not tag items as "hot"

Referencing & rating sources of information You should take care that any site you use to find information you post on this site is accurate and from an expert. You should also take care to note where you got the information and rate its relevant, credibility & authority (using the guide at the following website:http://school.discoveryeducation.com/schrockguide/pdf/e valmidd.pdf).


Why a naming protocol? As all blogs are shown in an alphabetical list. Finding the blog you need will become difficult over time as the number of blogs increase. Therefore, it is essential that we ALL use the same system to name our blogs so that you can easily and logically find the blog you need (as potentially there will be many that you will both access and create).

Student Blogs 10.

Firstname

11.

Lastname

Examples • Julia Gillard

Teacher Blogs To make it easier to find teacher blogs amongst the long list of student blogs, teacher Blogs should begin with a title.

1.Title 2.Lastname

Examples • Mr Smith

Blogs linked to Wikis Each wiki has its own linked blog. These wikis automatically have the same title as the wiki they are attached to.

Why a naming protocol? As all wikis are shown in an alphabetical list. Finding the wiki you need will become difficult over time as the number of wikis increase. Therefore, it is essential that we ALL use the same system to name our wikis so that you can easily and logically find the wiki you need (as potentially there will be many that you will both access and create). The protocol developed below was designed by a cross-campus ICT Team.

So what are the 4 elements needed and in what order? 21.

Subject & Class OR staff team OR special category e.g. Core5w

22.

Name of owner (Surname & 1st initial) eg. EastM

23.

Calendar Year e.g. 2011

24.

Description e.g. "Poetry notes"

Examples • Core 6T BaberH 2011- wiki • Homeroom 7T MartensG 2011 • Ancient History 11 EastM 2011 - Ancient Home Page • HSIE Faculty Staff EastM 2011 - Faculty Page

Special Categories Where there is a need for a special category, such as for a staff team, the name of the team would be used rather than the name of a class, but the name of the owner, the calendar year and a brief description


would still be included. All related pages should use the same category name.

Examples Some special categories include: 3.000 = critical pages related to use of Wikis and other server resources, the "000" title ensures it is listed first. 4.ideas@spcc = name of a staff team working on sharing great ideas for using technology in teaching and learning

What about tags? Tags add search words to make your pages easier to find with the search function. For pages that are added to existing Wiki sites, you should use a common word or phrase unique to that wiki site.

Example Tags For any pages related to the Ancient History course, the tag "Ancient" is used.
