We have been blogging! We started out learning about cyber safety and some of the "rules" of blogging. The presentation I shared with the class can be viewed here.
After learning about blogging, every student logged into his or her very own blog through kidblog.org and started writing. Kidblog.org is an amazing tool because it includes all the wonderful features of blogging sites like Blogger and Word Press, but makes teacher management and safety very easy. It is incredible that 1st and 2nd grade students are using the same tools as adult bloggers and getting this excellent writing experience, while still remaining safe online.
Safety has been such a focus of this unit that some of the students decided to create a video about cyber safety. Click below to see their work!
