How to embed different types of Digital Learning Objects

Embedding learning into our Blogs

By Mary

There are lots of different types of digital learning objects we embed into our blogs on a daily basis.

My favorite thing to share on my blog is Google Slides.

Google Docs

The easiest learning to share is my writing in Google Docs, simply just Copy and Paste it from the Google Doc onto your blog. However, don’t forget to use CTRL + SHIFT + V so that it gets rid of the formatting. You can always change the formatting on your blog.

Writing about Yr 8 & 7 Step up

Last week on Wednesday, the year 8s went to Year 8 Camp and that’s when the year 7 step up program began. The first thing the year 7s did was to get into our groups. My group was with Miss Hill. Next we went to room 3 to come up with a group chant, group poster and a group name which was The Mighty Kiwis.


My 1st favourite year 7 step up activity was painting Mrs Iloa. For painting we have to paint a background and a silhouette. The background I painted was with light colours like red, yellow and pink. My group couldn’t paint a silhouette because we only had time to paint a background. But it was fun to paint!


My second favourite activity was the Participation activity with Miss Hall. For the Participation activity, there were 2 games. The first one was with dots and the second one was to get the ball to the other side. For the first game, we got separated into 2 teams. We have to step on the dots without falling. The second activity was to get the ball to the other side. First we got handed these slide objects and a small ball. The goal was to get the ball to the other side of the classroom without touching the ball or letting it fall. What I learnt about the Participation activity was Leadership and Teamwork.
