Last week I started working with our AP students to create a Weebly blog to get them posting and integrating a little more tech into their writing. I call this lesson, Writing with Weebly. Weebly is primarily a website builder program that allows for teachers to create monitored students accounts (up to 40) under their accounts, or the students can create their own accounts with an email and password. It includes an option to setup a blog page, that works well with their devices for posting and commenting easily to others in class. We have collected the blog sites using a google form, and then place them as links in a classroom Symbaloo page embedded in the teacher's site. QR codes to the teacher site are placed around the room for ease of use with devices. The students are having fun writing with Weebly!
I work with teachers and students as an education technology specialist for middle school and serve as the TXDLA K-12 Board Member. My goal is to share innovative and useful information for other educators, as well as catalog my personal finds along the way!
