Individual Student Blogs in Early Childhood: Creating Digital Portfolios for Young Learners with a Focus on Digital Citizenship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

If you’re intimidated by the idea of building digital portfolios for your young learners, then you’re not alone. I jumped into individual student blogs two years ago filled with trepidation! However, with just one iPad, my class of first graders created blogs of their work from across the curriculum and learned to comment on those of others.
In this session, I will show you how to:

• Use EasyBlog Jr to build individual student blogs including photos, voice recordings, and videos
• Teach digital citizenship skills to ensure your students stay safe online and their parents feel secure
• Have your students appreciate the work of their classmates and other learners by leaving comments
