Blog

The Blog app is a great new blogging tool for schools.

Create blogs for both children and teachers.

Overview

Blogging in schools is an increasingly popular way to improve literacy skills and promote collaborative learning. The Blog app allows pupils to create a blog and write posts on any topic you wish them to cover. Their peers can read posts and add comments, and then you can publish any of these blogs directly to the school website.
