If you have a blog, podcast or videocast, you can commit your blog or website to participate in the Day of Education Blogathon.
From July 15th to July 31st bloggers from around India will register to participate so we can track how many blogs will be involved, as well as their approximate audience size.
On 3rd August participating blogs will put up a post, video or podcast about their thoughts on the "Future of Education".
We request bloggers to try to keep their posting related to their regular blog topic so that posts are individual, suited to their audience and look at the issue in many different lights.Register Now Who Is Participating
The best thing a blog can do is to keep their post on topic. Audiences visit our blogs because they enjoy the style, personality and topic of the site. So it makes sense that the best way to get through to these audiences is to use the style, personality and topic to talk about Poverty. For example:
A Design Blog might analyse the future of design education and how it can be improved in India.
A Tech Blog might look at pro-poor technologies and ideas which could transfer the future of education.
A Political Blog might suggest policy changes that could help the Future of Education.
A Sports Blog might look at education through sports and how it can be enhanced in the future.
A Business Blog might discuss how businesses can contribute to building the future of education.
A Celebrity Blog might write up about someone in their network who is contributing in a unique way to improve education.
A Movie Blog might create a list of the best documentaries relating to issues on education.
A Personal Blog might document a personal activity which is changing an under privileged child’s life through education.
The Day of Education Blogathon requires mass participation to work. With every registered blogger, the event reaches more people, grows in scale and creates more of a buzz. We rely solely on word of mouth (or keyboard) to spread so that means we need your help!
There are several ways you can promote The Day of Education:
The simplest, most effective way to spread The Day of Education Blogathon is by posting about your participation on your blog! Members of your audience who sign up will then in turn do the same and before you know it, the event spreads like wildfire!
Simply click "get code" on the video player on The Day of Education homepage, copy+paste the code onto your site and you’ll be promoting the event without typing a single word!
We’ve got a ton of badges, banners and graphics you can use to let visitors to your site know about your participation. Head over to the Resources Department to grab some graphic goodness.
Email, or better yet simply tell someone about The Day of Education Blogathon. After all there’s nothing like one-one communication to do some convincing!
Got a press contact? The Day of Education Blogathon has plenty of people for them to talk to, and let’s face it, what’s better than a feel-good, new technology story for the news? So send them to our Press Department
When you register for the blogathon, you will be able to see a pixel code in this page. You should add it to your blog post.
Once you have written the post, you can add 2 line breaks and go into Edit HTML or View Source section to add the pixel code and you can publish to post
