Sharilee Swaity's insight:

For kids, everything is online now. So, doing a journal online makes sense. It is really important, though, that the journal is in a safe environment, and not shared with anyone but close family and friends.

There are some creative and interesting uses for this web tool. The earlier we get children writing, the stronger their skills will be. Check it out and share!

I just signed up for this tool, for my class. I love that it is another way to get students writing, and that it is interactive and a medium they can relate to!

Thanks for letting me know - I see great value in this. If it gets children writing and loving the process, it's a win-win.
