When you pass through the doorway you enter the world of Global Student you are entering a research project initially started by Connect (previously the Victorian Education Channel) and the School Library Association of Victoria. Global Student is the student space connected to Global Teacher. In order to get blogging spaces for your students it is important to register and create a Global Teacher blog.
Whilst Global Student is a space for student blogs it is important to follow a couple of rules to ensure student safety.
- Only teachers can create blogs. You can create them for students but the teacher MUST be the Administrator (owner) of the blog. This allows moderation of comments and content.
- Teachers are responsible for their students online. They must ensure they are supervised in the same way they would be on an excursion. We ask teachers and students to keep the space safe and appropriate for others to view.
- Should something go wrong or you see content you think needs to be removed let us know straight away. Contact us at [email protected]
