Tumblr is a popular and easy to use blogging platform. This article points out some ways to use Tumblr that you might not immediately think of. 

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 7:21 PM

This great article shows how we can use Tumblr in our classrooms. I love the suggestion of a quick and easy website or hosting an online debate. They also point out that we need to protect kids online, but they need experience to learn how to do this - Tumblr could be a good way to do this :0)


Do you use Tumblr?

I have an account but don't check it much...maybe I should be?

Any tips or advice for me?

NancyEvans@ATS-LU's curator insight, September 12, 7:01 AM

Tumblr is an easy to use blogging format which emphasizes visuals.
