How to Share the Teacher Challenge posts

Print Friendly

Educators have contacted us asking for email copies of our Teacher Challenge posts as they’re finding email is the best way to sharing them with their local teachers.

It’s great to know you’re finding these posts helpful!

So we thought you might like to see how easy it is to send emails of our posts from the Teacher Challenge blog.

Here’s how you do it:

1.  Go to the post you want to email.

For example, to send an email copy of  ”Activity 1: Getting your class blog started – Create blog and customize look” you go to:

http://teacherchallenge.edublogs.org/2012/07/30/activity-1-getting-your-class-blog-started/

2.  Click on the Print PDF icon.

3.  Click on PDF.

4.  Click on “Download your PDF” to save a PDF copy of the post on your computer.

5.   Attach the PDF to an email to share with others.

 

The alternative is to use the email option on the Print PDF screen however emailing it as a PDF is more obvious than teachers realising they need to click on the link in the email.

Below is what the email option from the Print PDF screen looks like:

The plugins we use to help teachers easily share our posts are:

  1. Print Friendly and PDF plugin - Optimize your pages for print and let your readers download or email a PDF version of your posts or pages.
  2. AddThis Social Share plugin – Places Facebook like, Twitter, email and other sharing icons on your posts.

These can be activated in Plugins and you can read more about other plugin options here.

  1. Hi Sue,

    Thanks so much for adding the option to print to PDF. That’s very helpful to give as a handout during professional development or through an email! I will activate it on our campus blogs.

    Kind regards,
    Tracy

    • Hi Tracy

      I have to confess! It was one of Ronnie’s great ideas. However, I wrote the post because we get so many emails asking us to send another email copy of posts they accidentally deleted or missed from our email notification.

      It is my favorite plugin besides AddThis Social Share.

  2. It’s really a nice and helpful piece of information. I’m glad that you shared this helpful info with us. Please keep us informed like this.
