I used free KidBlog websites this school year with my 22 classes of 4th and 5th grade STEM students, so they could periodically post text reflections, images, audio reflections, and links to videos we used in class for STEM lessons. Since the school year is over, it’s time to “archive” these classes.
This evening I used free client software from Screencast-O-Matic to create a 3.5 minute YouTube tutorial showing how to “archive” a KidBlog website at the end of the school year when students are finished posting to the site and won’t post to it any more. After a KidBlog site is archived, posts and comments are still available to view but new ones can’t be added. It’s possible to UNARCHIVE (re-activate) a Kidblog if for some reason someone needs to add new content to the site.
Learn more about using KidBlog and other, similar digital tools on the “Interactive Writing” page of my Mapping Media website.
