Earlier this week I received an email from a teacher that was looking for ideas on how to get more comments on her students’ group blog. My usual suggestions are as follows:
1. Connect with and ask other teachers on Twitter if they will comment or have their students comment.
2. Submit your blog to the Edublogs community.
3. Connect with teachers on a network like The Educator’s PLN. Again, ask if there are people willing to comment or have their students comment. You might also consider starting a group within the network just for the purpose of connecting classroom blogs for commenting.
What’s your strategy for getting people to comment on classroom blogs? Please leave a comment. (Comments containing links are moderated and may not appear immediately).
