Set up your own blog with Blogger
I am always surprized when I give presentations on Blogger. It offers so many great ways of working with your students and it is so easy to set up. You just need a google account ( like gmail or google+) and Blogger comes free. Set up a class blog for all your students, set up a teacher blog for other teachers to read or get your students to create blogs individually or in pairs of groups. This set of videos will get you up and running.
