I love blogging. It’s an excellent way to share your thoughts with others, to collaborate, to learn, to create… etc., etc.
My question is this: is there a platform that makes it easier for high school students to blog?
Let me explain why I’m asking this:
- When students are in elementary school, they generally have one teacher for the year. If the class is blogging, their teacher can open an account with Kidblog, Edublogs or another great platform. When students come to high school, they have about four different teachers per semester. If different teachers want to blog with the same student, does each individual teacher have to create an account so the same student can blog for each course?
- If a student wants to blog for each of their courses, is there a blog that offers this versatility? For example: a few of my students have been blogging for over a year. They had created their own blog through Google’s ‘Blogger’, and each new post for our class would show up on their site as the first thing that would be seen when visiting their site. When they tried to organize their blog by creating different pages or tabs to organize their work for different courses, they were disappointed that new posts couldn’t be made on each page.
If you have any suggestions or answers, please share!
