Melville Intermediate - Quadblogging Aotearoa Meet our buddies...

Quadblogging Aotearoa has just begun and we've been paired up with three other Intermediate Schools.   Two of the classes that are part of our quad are classrooms that we've worked with before - Room 15 from Tawa Intermediate School and 8C from Selwyn House in Christchurch.  You can click on the link to both those class pages here. During this week the students of Room Five are visitng both these pages again and leaving comments on the students work.  We're also preparing an introductory video to introduce our school and introduce areas around our school that we would consider to be special interest. 

This is going to be a general publishing task for our students this week.  We started the brainstorming today and will start the drafting of the script for the shooting of the video footage later in the week.  The third class that we're working with is Room Thirteen.

One of the great things about Quadblogging is that it is going to open up our work to a whole new audience.  We're also able to bring our audience to the classrooms that we're networking with.  Room Thirteen may have only just started working online but we're really excited to have just started networking with them.  We will be visiting all our Quadblogging buddies in the next week, leaving comments and looking forward to the experience.


  1. Hey room 5,
    I can't wait to start quad-blogging. It will be loads of fun I hope. I'd never heard of quad blogging until now. How about you? Can't wait to look at more exciting blogs.

    We've completed in the Quadblogging last year but we've already had more comments from Aotea Quadblogging in the last two days than all of last year so quite pleased about that. And yes we are also very excited to be looking at pages and the work from classrooms like yours.
