I'm strongly considering having my students use Google blogs... maybe. I like the blogging site that I've used in the past with the students, because its darned hard to find... And the students can't post without my approval, comments also can't be posted without my approval.
But, it has no storage and we need to use a space like Flickr or Picasa to store photos.
I do an independent living unit with my students and it has evolved into a largely computer-based event, including blogging answers instead of submitting papers. I'd like to have them do even more of that using screen shots or saving things as a picture, maybe making movies using our iTouches... scanning items...
It would be a lot easier to do that with Google Blogs than the site we've been using.
I'm wondering if anybody knows if there is a way to duplicate some of the safety features from our other blog sites on the Google Blogs... we don't have Google for Education at school, and I have no money to spend on a site like EduBlogs.
