Students Get Feedback on Their Work From Others Online

In a traditional school, a student is asked to complete an assignment. The teacher grades it, gives feedback, and then returns it to the student. Wouldn't it be nice if other people across the world could view the work and give their feedback to the students? But, how about the online safety of the students? 

Ms. Candiano is using Kidblog with her students. Kidblog provides a safe environment for students to share their work with a global audience and receive authentic feedback on their efforts. 

In this day in age, one could argue that just writing isn't enough. Students are also learning to blog and be part of a global community. This practice also motivates the student. It's one thing to write for your teacher to see and a different one for the world to see. Students typically put more effort into their writing. A win win for both teacher and student.
