Exercise: Live blog


Below are various live-blogs from past games/events. In a computer lab, break the students into groups and have them read their two assigned live-blogs individually. Then, as a group, have students discuss what they read. Ask them to come up with 2-3 “dos and don’ts” in live-blogging. Together as a class, create a list of what makes a good live-blog.
