Tech Tip Tuesday: Get Your Students Blogging in Schoology

tech-tip-tuesday

Here is another often overlooked feature in Schoology. Instead of having students create entire websites/blogs, you can get straight to the nitty gritty with Schoology Blogs.

To access the blog feature, click on your profile name in the upper right corner of the screen –> then find and click “Blog” on the left navigation. On the new screen that opens, click on the “Create” button to start posting. Here is a quick video on how to use this feature:

You can find all the blogs you follow by clicking on the “home” button –> “subscriptions”. This will show all posts. The blog editor tool also uses the same rich-text editor like all Schoology assignment posts. You can embed videos, images, graphs, links, and other edtech tools (padlet, polleverywhere, etc).

Here are some links to help in this journey:
