Kidblogs: Digital Writing & Navigation Tips

In the 21st century, no classroom should only write on paper! Digital writing amplifies students' voices. With an awareness of audience comes a greater focus on quality and motivation to write well. Immediate feedback (from teacher, parent, or classmate) is also a driver of critical thinking and engagement.

An easy and approachable starting place for classroom collaboration with student blogs is to partner up with classes in your own school. Then later, once you've gotten your feet wet, take it a step further and dive in. Quadblogging can elevate students' audience to an entirely new level. After signing up, classes can be matched up with 4 classrooms with similar preferences from from over 50 countries around the globe. Students blog, connect, and comment on one another's blogs over a 4-week cycle. Quadblogging Connects Student Writers with Global Audiences (via Edutopia.org) provides more insights on benefits of global empathy, perspective and audience expansion. 

Kidblog.org provides a simple user-friendly platform for kids to share their writing and knowledge across the curriculum and to develop and apply responsibilities of digital citizenship.

Here a few tips to support students and teachers getting started with navigation, writing and commenting.
