How I Use It
Kidblog is used in my classroom as a communication tool with other classes during the Primary Blogging Community time. We learn about other classrooms and answer their blogs on certain weeks, then in turn, other classroom worldwide focus on our individual blogs. We continue to blog and encourage our classmates and our community to communicate with us through this tool.
My Take
This is another opportunity that I think that all teachers should try to do with their students. With all of the standardized testing being online next year, children need more authentic learning experiences with technology. This is the perfect platform.
