  1. Does anyone know where I can set up a blog for KS3 kids without e-mail?
    I've got a wiki set up (wikispaces.com) but was ideally after a proper blog
  2. If you have a gmail account you can use plus addressing...

    The idea is that the blog sees myemail@gmail.com and myemail+pupil1@gmail.com as different, but gmail doesn't - so you get lots of lots of accounts from one email address. Failing that, you could host your own Wordpress or Wordpress-µ site.
  3. Cheers! Will look into these.
    As a PGCE student I'd rather not have "links" as such so I can leave it behind me when I go in June but I still want to get the kids using different technology
  4. You could always create a new gmail account and leave the login details behind when you go...
  5. is this using blogger then? (seeing as Google bought that?)
  6. Personally I would consider Posterous for sheer ease of use, but you can use plus addressing for any site that requires email signup.

    Worth a check - do you run Moodle as your VLE? If so they already have a blog each which aggregates into a central feed! If you don't run Moodle, perhaps your current VLE has a blog plugin?

  9. Fab thanks!
    The school doesn't have a VLE and although Uni give us a Moodle (for an assignment!) it's and old version (1.8) and the URL is as long as your arm. Plus I couldn't leave it behind.

    My other choice was to use wiki spaces which is e-mail free for k12 but that's not the same as a blog!
