Wouldn't it be great if there was a safe place for your students to express their opinions, report on information or simply reflect what they have learned or have made connections from on the Internet in a safe place? Found it! Kidblog is created by teachers for teachers to encourage writing through communication online. Is it safe? Yes. Is it easy? Yes! How much? Free! Quality? A+!
As adults, we are always concerned with safety on the Internet for our children. Kidblog provides a closed classroom setting. Teachers have full control as administrators of the site and allow only students and guests to enter. All insider comments are reviewed and either allowed or deleted. The comments are private and only viewed by the set community. No personal information is required by students or teachers.
