Basics of Blogging


Published on

This is a presentation that I use to introduce blogging to students. We use this as a way to think about the "rules of the road" when blogging. I generate student responses first, and then share some common safety tips. We use Kidblog as our platform, but you could use any platform!
I hope this helps!
