Kidblog is Different

Kidblog is built by teachers, for teachers, so students can get the most out of the writing process. Our mission is to empower teachers to embrace the benefits of the coming digital revolution in education. As students become creators - not just consumers - of information, we recognize the crucial role of teachers as discussion moderators and content curators in the classroom. With Kidblog, teachers monitor and control all activity within their classroom blogging community.

Kidblog is Safe

Kidblog provides teachers with the tools to help students safely navigate the digital – and increasingly social – online landscape. Kidblog allows students to exercise digital citizenship within a secure, private classroom blogging space. Kidblog’s security features put safety first:

  • Teachers have administrative control over all student blogs and student accounts.
  • Your students’ blogs are private by default – viewable only by classmates and the teacher. Teachers can elect to make posts public, while still moderating all content.
  • Teachers can add password-protected parent and guest accounts to the community at their discretion.
  • Comment privacy settings block unsolicited comments from outside sources.
  • Kidblog is fully COPPA compliant and does not require any personal information from students.

Kidblog is Simple

Kidblog provides the most student-friendly publishing experience available anywhere. But don’t let the “Kid” in Kidblog fool you - we’re a powerful publishing platform (based on WordPress) suitable for any K-12 student, older kids included. Kidblog helps students focus on what's important by removing the distractions that plague other blogging services. If you've tried (with limited pedagogical success) tools like Blogger, Edublogs, or WordPress.com, you'll notice the Kidblog difference immediately.

  • No advertising of any kind.
  • Easy login menus allow students to select their name from a list of students in the class - no memorizing complex user names.
  • Clutter-free design means your students will spend less time fussing with widgets/options and more time publishing.
  • Central blog directory and simple navigation links make it easy for students to find classmates' blogs.
  • Class activity feeds to find the most current conversations.
