Kia ora,

Just sharing a question that came through on the Wire from Annemarie Hyde - can you help:

"If you use Blogger for individual student blogs, can let me know how you manage the "safe content" aspect."

Can you help? Pop your answer in this thread, as well as any other questions you have about using Blogger with students.

    We have two digital classes who are trialling using individual blogs this year as e-portfolios.  We have Google Apps in school so all blogs come under our school domain making it legal for the children to have them.  Posts and comments are monitored by teachers through the "Teacher Dashboard"  designed by Hapara.  This costs approximately $4 per child, but is worth it's weight in gold as teachers instant access to all docs created and blog posts and comments. Children are only authors of the blogs, so if they want to "bling" their blogs they are signed in by teachers as a reward to do this.  This was an idea shared by Dorothy Burt and works fantastically.
