This past week, our team was in Phoenix, AZ attending the AASL National Conference — the only national professional membership organization focused on school librarians and the school library community. We had a fantastic time speaking with new and veteran members of our Kidblog community.
Throughout the week, the Kidblog team stationed themselves in the AASL exhibit hall, giving demos, answering questions, and helping teachers envision the many uses of Kidblog within their libraries. Discussions focused on privacy and teacher moderation, student-driven portfolios, and connecting with students beyond the four walls of your library. These discussions energized AASL attendees and our Kidblog team alike.
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to brainstorm ideas for implementing blogging in classes, libraries, and schools with librarians and media specialists. We even had a few familiar faces stop by to share with us how they have found success using Kidblog within their districts:

Our time at the AASL Conference was informative, enlightening, and energizing. We gained new insights and look forward to transforming shared ideas into future features in our platform. New and familiar friends brought smiles to our faces as we shared enthusiasm for the power of writing for an authentic audience.
