  1. Hi Anne,
    I am really hoping that I will be able to attend the session on Wednesday afternoon (for me) because I want to hear what Sue has to say. I also want you to know that China is also involved as my class is registered though it may be a bit of a challenge having to use a VPN for Edublogs but we have set up on Weekbly and at the moment we can access that. My class is really excited and I am nervous on how this all works. 🙂

    • Hi Heather I hope you can come too. It will be 5pm your time. Fantastic to know that you will be involved and I hope that your blogging platform will remain. The session we had with Linda Yollis today was so inspiring. So if you get time to listen to this as well, you will enjoy.
      You will just love blogging with your class. Don’t be nervous as there is so much help out there for you, if you need it. Just yell, if you need a hand. See you tomorrow, hopefully. If not, let me know and I shall send you the link to the recording.

  2. I probably won’t make this session on Wednesday (9am Irish time). Will there be a podcast of it? This ismy first time my students have taken the challenge and I’d love to hear all about the challenge and what to expect.

    • HI Noeleen, all these sessions are recorded, so I can send you the recording link. I will also add a post back to this blog, with the link as well. Sue Wyatt is a great speaker, so I am sure you will like listening to the session. all the best with the Challenge. You will love being part of it.
