If you are wondering where to publish your classroom blogs, check out Richard Byrne's blog--"Picking the Best Platform for Your Classroom Blog"--published in Free Technology for Teachers (March 19, 2013) for some ideas related to blog management.
What platform are you using for classroom blogs?
What criteria did you use in selecting that host?
Do you have tips to share for creating classroom blogs?
Hi Lynne Hoffman,
I read your post about Where's the best place to host your classroom blogs? I read and post blog posts in Recursos para docentes del castellano and in the Reading & Language Arts Groups and have read blogs on WeAreTeachers.com < WeAreTeachers - Get Lesson Plans - Teacher Grants - Teaching Resources and More>.
I think I also see the Thinkfinity Award Cup in your post.
We appreciate your support of the Thinkfinity Community and participation in the groups you mentioned. Members have the opportunity to post in the open groups so we encourage blogs as a means of sharing ideas and information.
I also like the site WeAreTeachers.com that you mentioned in your reply. These discussions are a wonderful way for teachers to learn about new places to look for educational materials.
I am fond of the Collaborize Classroom blogging platform. It has a topic library loaded with thought provoking writing prompts. It engages students in online activities, assignments and discussions. Teachers can print out participation reports and download peer-reviewed topic-based lessons.
Thanks, Joyce, for sharing this site. I am sure teachers appreciate having suggestions from fellow educators. The features provided on the Collaborize Classroom blogging platform seem user friendly and appropriate for teachers and students.
