IH Portugal Training Day - Blog Brainstorm

Brainstorming on a Blog?! Can it be done? Let's do an experiment to find out then...
  1. Hit 'comments' and write down any ideas you have on activities you could do on a blog for EFL... - don't waste time thinking too much and don't worry about doubling up on other people's ideas, this is a generating ideas stage...
  2. Publish after every couple of ideas
  3. Read what the others are saying...
  4. Add more of your own ideas however similar they are to the others.
  5. Get going...! Hit that comments button and type, type, type away like there's no tomorrow!
    Next stop the bar! (but not yet...)
  6. Read the final product by clicking on the title and skimming down all the comments which should now be on one page.
  7. What did you think of Brainstroming on blogs? I also like to brainstrom in chat programmes - but that's for another day...
