New Kidblog Themes

Kidblog is a great for elementary and middle-school age students. If you want to get your students blogging, this is a cool tool and it’s FREE. When I first discovered this site a couple of years ago, I thought it would be great to have my lab students learn the concept of blogging. The only downfall I could find at the time was the one-theme template. Now, they have 4 themes which gives the teacher a better variety and they’re working on more themes for the near future. Kidblog allows your students to publish posts and participate in discussions within a secure classroom blogging community. Teachers maintain complete control over student blogs.

This is Language Arts at it’s Best! Check out this video to get you started.

 There are many new recent features such as embedding media and rich-text commenting. And even better, you and your students can edit on mobile devices with the free Wordpress App. This is a win-win tool for school. Thanks Kidblog for what you are doing to promote educational technology in the classroom.
