How I Use It
I have used Kidblog in a variety of ways. Each time students were driven to write and expand on their writing. Whether it was responding to a teacher blog post or creating a blog post on their own, students love to see their writing published and read other published writings. Kidblog's teacher and class setup are easy. Students can join via a code or teachers can easily add students to their class. It is worth every minute of your time to give this tool a try.
Publishing student content is an awesome way to empower students. Anytime I can send their blogs on to others, I do. Comments from people outside of their classroom and school are so empowering. Kidblog has endless potential for student writing and publishing. The teacher options for moderating posts and comments help those unsure of publishing content feel more comfortable, however, students do love to see their content published immediately. Kidblog also opens the opportunity to incorporate the importance of digital citizenship.
