Blogging and Wikis for Kids

KidBlog is the ideal solution for managing individual student blogs. The dashboard gives you full control over posts and comments. It really is simple and safe!



It is becoming more apparent as teachers and students get more familiar with the online digital tools and devices that there needs to be some management of these. Some teachers still get tied up with the old adage that all the students in the class has to 'produce a product at the end using this tool'.

It doesn't have to be so...I encourage teachers to have a 'Teacher Digital Toolkit' This is an example of a basic one For more teacher tools go to this website. Students need a Digital Toolkit as well. I am working on 2 different websites at the moment, one is called Publishing Ideas

  • variety of ways to publish i.e cartoons and comics

and the other is called Web 2 tools and Widgets
  • tools and widgets that will enhance your blog or wiki
  • photo presentation tools
Set up a student toolkit so that students know what is available and what they can use. In consultation with you, you both can decide what is the best tool for their learning.
