I started this class blog
Blogs are now a common feature of the internet and allow the reader a more interactive experience through the option to comment on a post. In this way the writer also gets instant feedback.
But is it safe?
This is a public blog and anyone can access it. In fact it is visited by individuals from all over the world. This screenshot of our visitor map is from 2 weeks (September 28 - October 10).
I have certain rules regarding safety. No last names are ever posted. We try to avoid students faces in any pictures posted of the classroom. Students are given specific instructions when they post or comment not to give out any last names, locations, or other identifying information. In addition to this, I receive an email every time a comment is left on the blog. If the comment is questionable in any way, I delete it. I take internet safety and privacy very important and try to use this to teach students.
All parents, students and visitors are welcome to comment on any post. Please keep your comments appropriate and on topic.
If you are not familiar with how to comment:
