Kids Blogging

March 13, 2008

At our primary school the children are thoroughly enjoying our class blog and have recently started to contribute to individual blogs.  Their enthusiasm and motivation for writng has been overwhelming!  We’re exploring the idea of setting up a social networking property for the children and also a youtube type of facility for sharing their videos.  Any advice?
