Twice each year, educator extraordinaire Sue Wyatt puts together an amazing 10 week global challenge for students of all ages and abilities.

Most definitely the largest event of it’s kind, the Student Blogging Challenge has hundreds and hundreds of registered students and classes. The goal of the challenge is to improve students’ global awareness, blogging skills, and online netiquette.

It isn’t to late to join in – students register here and teachers register your classes here.

You don’t have to use Edublogs to participate, and activities will ask students and mentors to visit each others’ blog posts, make comments, and collaborate on 10 weekly challenges!

It is an absolute blast! With loads of learning going on too :)
