I can not believe that we are already nearing the end of July. I will be back at school in a month! That just seems unbelievable. Needless to say, I have been planning and preparing already. Today I spent a lot of time on my new class website.
For the past few years I have bounced around between different services. Last year I used the new service provided by the district but I wasn’t thrilled with it. It wasn’t user-friendly, it was a pain to update, and parents had a hard time keeping up with it. When I sat down to figure out what I wanted to do next year, I kept coming back to this blog. I love the ease of of blog and the interactive aspects of it. WordPress’ software allows me to design separate pages, upload handouts, offer subscription by email, and so much more. But of course, I want to keep this blog separate from school. That is when I discovered Edublogs. I love this site! I set up a blog a few days ago and have been playing with it ever since. I have been writing welcome posts, designing pages, and otherwise tweaking it to my preferences. The best part is, I know I haven’t even begun to touch on the capabilities of the blog as offered by Edublogs. So if you are looking for a great place to keep your class website or blog, definitely check out Edublogs.
