Ellen, we haven't been allowed to use blogger at school in the past because kids could get to other sites.
(Now we use Google apps for other things like faculty mail. )
I'm hoping to find something simple and secure where my students can a. save images b. write artist statements, c. where I can place a rubric for them to self-assess, & d. where I can add notes & my assessment.
So maybe this new Google development will have something. Any suggestions welcome!
We all have to increase the writing we do in the classroom, and I am hoping to avoid suddenly adding thousands of pieces of paper to my life.
