I am wanting to use blogging with my tutor group next year (about 14 boys) but am not sure how to go about it. Should I just have one blog myself and create pages for them in it, or should I get them all to set up a blog? No-one else in my school seems to be into blogging (as far as I know) so I don't have anyone to ask
I have had success with Kidblog. This blog site uses the Wordpress platform, and makes it very easy for teachers to control the content and postings of students. It's also FREE! You can create student usernames and passwords. I've just completed a book promotional project in which I had students summarize reader responses and daily learning via a post. I had it set so that any time a student posted something, their post had to be approved before it appeared on the class blog. For these 2nd graders, they really enjoyed their first blogging experience! Hope this helps!
