How I Use It
You do not need any tech knowledge to learn to use the site. Their are videos and webinars about how to use it right on the site.
Our 4th graders make daily posts and respond to others for their class blogs. Third graders post responses only to teacher related posts. Students love reading others posts. Students really use their thinking skills while posting.
We use the free program and have not found any limitations to what we need to do. We can post videos of student work, share links to other sites, and even post surveys on the site for students.
Weebly is a software for creating websites and blogs. I personally use the website software as the start page in my computer lab. Each grade level has a page with links to various sites.
Teachers at my school use the blogging software with students. Students love the blogs and are easily able to use the software.
