Three Customizations You Should Know How to Apply to Your Classroom Blog

Creating a blog is one of the first things that I recommend to teachers who are looking to improve the way that they distribute information to students and their parents. I also frequently recommend using blogs to have students share their writing as well as audio and visual projects. Once the basic blog is created using Blogger or WordPress (including platforms like Edublogs which are powered by WordPress) then we'll start to look at ways to customize the blog. There are three customizations that I often recommend. Those are scheduling blog posts, pinning or featuring blog posts, and restricting access to posts. The three videos embedded below demonstrate how to do those things.
