Welcome to our Classroom BlogPortal!

Kia Ora!!! Welcome to the DigiMax blog. We are a digital class of Year 7 and 8 students at St Andews Middle School in Hamilton, New Zealand. Join us as we enter the world of blogging where we will be sharing our thoughts, goals and work completed in class. We hope you enjoy our blog and visit again soon. Please leave us a comment.


Blog Rules
1.  Never post anything personal.  No last names, phone numbers, addresses or birthdays.    
2.  Always use appropriate language; after all, this is still a school activity!
3.  Respect your classmates and their ideas.  Just like in class, we never put people down.  If you disagree, do so with respect and kindness.
4.  Best spellings are required.  This is not myspace!  Spell out words as correctly as you can and try to use proper punctuation. Go back and 'Edit Entry' later if you realise there is a mistake, or someone else mentions it to you.
5.  Practice, practice, practice.  For the rest of your life you will be expected to use computers.  If you are not used to it yet, that is okay!  You are allowed to make mistakes and you are allowed to ask for help.  Just keep practicing!
6. In classtime you may only write posts. Save the comment writing and the changing of screen settings for at home.
What is a blog??
