Blogging in Music Education

 I have a blog for each class. Students know what is covered and assignments are noted.

Posts are sequential. Newest at top. Pages are like webpages.

One post per week. Students can see what they will do and review for quizzes is more efficient.

Post student photos for fun.

Blogging from an iPad.   Use the app or login in a browser window.   

1st…  Take a screenshot:    Depress Power and Home button at the same time.  You will hear a shutter sound.

2nd… Edit:  Go to Photos… 

  Your screenshot will be the most recent photo.  Open it.  Using cropping tool select the part of the image you want to use.

  Insert:  

  
You may also take photos with your iPhone and share to the cloud.  Navigate to and insert from that folder.

  
3rd… Links:  The two links of chain in the center are the icon for inserting links.   Copy address from a page. 

You may insert the URL or link from a word.

Publish.  Update.  

Setting up your blog will take time, but first give thought to your blog name. Choose something easy to remember, but not weird or awkward. Probably.

There are many free blogging sites.  I choose to use this one so I do not have to learn others. Life is already complicated.
