Have you ever heard about blogging? Do you know what it is?

Welcome to the Digital Era!

This blog is designed to serve as a model for EFL students from Pegasus English Language School, who have taken up the Digital Literacy course intended for young learners aged 13-19.

So, hello guys! I guess for most of you this is the first time you are writing a blog about a topic of your interest.

Just to remind you that you can find the resources for the first week on the following link – Padlet: Digital Literacy.

This week, we are going to learn about the basics of blogging, focusing on successful blogs from young bloggers under 18. You will also be introduced to the types of blogs, as well as what it takes to make your topic interesting for a bigger audience.

You will also be shown various blogs for comparison. Finally, you will be given a chance to post your own blogs and give comments to your classmates’ blogs in English, and hopefully become successful bloggers in the future.

Don’t forget to research other bloggers and follow their work closely. After all, one can learn best from other people’s examples!

I hope you enjoy the Digital Literacy course for EFL Students at Pegasus ELS.

Your hosts for this event are Pero SardzoskiGjorgji Trpeski and Dejan Stanojevikj.

How do you feel about blogging, and what did you learn this week?

What type of blog do you have and what topics do you write about?

Please leave a comment to share your ideas with the other bloggers!

Thanks for attending the Digital Literacy for EFL Students at Pegasus ELS!

  1. Blogging it’s a great way to express something that you want to talk about. I have kinda personal blog, I post everything that’s on my mind at the time I’m writing. Finally, young people will have opportunity to learn more about Digital Literacy since it’s important nowadays.

  2. I haven’t really thought about blogging before and I am still new at this, but as far as I can tell, blogging is so much fun! It allows you to express yourself . Your creativity, your ideas, you get inspired, you get motivated, you get to FEEL the importance of your opinions and feeling… You get to learn from other people’s blogs and you get to spend your time rationally instead of wasting it on pointlessly scrolling down the social pages and leaving likes to people that you might even dislike.

    • Thanks for being part of it! I love science, and I think there are so many interesting ways to share scientific knowledge with the young people especially, because science is important, and it matters, since it opens new perspectives, which is something young people need all the time! So go for it!

      Blogging for some people is a great source of income… But that will come later when you become a professional blogger! 😉
