Finding a Safe Environment Where Your Students Can Blog
edWeb’s TechTools for the Classroom community held its May webinar on blog safety and the benefits that blogging provides for students and teachers. A ton of research and anecdotal evidence exists that proves there is an increase in writing proficiency for students who write frequently. Blogging is a great way for students to write frequently in an online format – but teachers often are afraid to encourage students to blog due to privacy and safety concerns. Webinar presenter Shannon Holden, Assistant Principal, Republic Middle School, MO, responded to these concerns and also revealed several free (and secure) blogging platforms for students and teachers to use.
