Workshop description: Learn how to setup, use and moderate content on a classroom blog to improve student writing skills. A moderated classroom blog is the ideal platform to use to share announcements, classroom news, and student work for a public audience. In this session we’ll use free blogging tools like KidBlog and Class Blogmeister to facilitate student writing. We’ll also explore how free blogs on Posterous.com can be used by students to not only share text, but also different kinds of rich media including images, audio and video files.
