My own classes just started their own Book Blog on Kidblog.  I'm inviting students to create blogs too: so far, ideas range from Favorite Passages, Riddle/Brainteasers, Science & Math Breakthroughs... We JUST got started!

Here's it is: http://kidblog.org/MsFranksClass-4/

We JUST started a Book Blog in my classes.  We're using Kidblog, so all students can start their own blog, if they want to.  I have invited students to start their own blogs, and some ideas include: Favorite Passages, Riddles/Brainteasers, Science & Math Breakthroughs.

We JUST started, but here it is: http://kidblog.org/MsFranksClass-4/

How to set up a blog in your classroom....

 

Many teachers have started to experiment with blogs. For some, a blog is an electronic notebook -- one students can't lose (or claim the dog ate). For others, it's a forum where a class discussion can unfold 24/7. Either way, blogging can be a powerful educational tool. Suggestions for setting up a classroom blog follow. (Keep in mind that these ideas assume student access to computers and the Internet.)

Teaching how to use the internet effectively makes so much more sense than pretending it doesn't exist.

Glog is a fun tool for classroom teachers...and students.. Here are some great examples to inspire you.

KB...Konnected's curator insight, April 27, 2013 11:04 AM

Great way to find Glogs you can use in the classroom. Glogs are interactive posters that are a fun way for students to present what they are learning.

My students loved this tool so much

QuadBlogging | "In terms of young children developing as writers this is the most interesting development in the last 20 years." Pie Corbett | The Inquiring Librarian | Scoop.it

QuadBlogging is a leg up to an audience for your class/school blog. Over the last 12 months 100,000 pupils have been involved in QuadBlogging from 3000 classes in 40 countries.

 

A Blog needs an audience to keep it alive for your learners. Too often blogs wither away leaving the learners frustrated and bored. Quadblogging gives your blog a truly authentic and global audience that will visit your blog, leave comments and return on a cycle.

Beautiful infographic; powerful message

My Beginner ESL students have started blogging everyday and it has been a huge success!  They are enjoying it so much that they are improving their writing skills without realizing it. Blogging is good for all!
