Webinar: Allowing Students to Publish to the World

In this Kidblog Webinar, Doug Robertson shares how he uses blogs in his fifth grade class to break  up the traditional school-based writing process and make it more relevant and exciting. Doug provides tips for moderating your students’ comments section and discusses the benefits of publishing students’ work for a wider audience.

In this video, you will learn:

  • The benefits of giving students the opportunity to write for themselves, not the teacher
  • How to be a guide for students, helping them navigate their sharing with the world
  • How to use the comments section while avoiding negativity – paying attention to what our kids are writing and who is writing back
  • How an audience is the best way to get students to revise a draft more than once
