Provide an authentic, engaging and secure publishing platform for your students. Use to create digital, interactive "social portfolios" that promote thoughtful reflection and conversation around academic content. Use students' blogging records as an assessment tool throughout the school year. Archive blog content to create a longitudinal record of academic efforts across school years and classes. This session applies to classroom teachers managing a single set of class blogs, as well as technology specialists looking to establish a blog network within an entire grade level or school.
