Build an Audience for Your Students' Blogs Through QuadBlogging

One of my favorite uses of the Internet in school is blogging. Blogging allows students and teachers to share their ideas with an audience that reaches beyond their local settings. Students get excited when they start to see comments appearing on classroom blogs. The challenge teachers face when starting new blogs is getting enough comments on students' posts to keep them excited about writing blog posts. QuadBlogging can help teachers tackle that challenge.

QuadBlogging is a free service that matches four classrooms together to follow and comment on blog posts. Register your class for QuadBlogging and you will be matched with three other similar classrooms. After being matched, it is up to you and other teachers in your quad to continue the blogging relationship for as long as you would like. Learn more about the QuadBlogging concept in the video below.
