When I started my blog this year I couldn't wait to get my students involved in blogging. Then it hit me...they had to have an email address to get an account. Most of my K, 1st, 2nd and 5th graders don't have their own email....so I created a "class" blog. They like having it, they always ask to do it, but I know they aren't as invested and engaged as they would be if they each had their own blog.
Enter my twitter network---tonight I see a tweet from Alec Courosa about linked gmail accounts. Apparently you can link other names to your gmail account so that each one of your students can have an email that will come to you! In my world, that means everyone can have their own blog! I can't wait! Watch this easy to follow jingcast from Alec to see just how this works. Click HERE to watch.
