I need recommendations! I am teaching grades 4-9 summer
blogging - a one week crash course. Kids are likely to continue blogging after the course ends. They are social creatures.
I would like you to suggest opensource, zero download, safe tools for this bunch. I'm thinking I would like to set these up with safe email, too.
You're the educators, you tell me!

Their ad version is free; there is a cost if you want to use their ad free version. I believe it's around $4.00 per student, depending on how many students are in your school.

Is Gaggle free?

The pricing on ePals looks pretty decent, but their blogging feature is a separate product from email. We're using Gaggle next year with our fifth and sixth graders and their blogging tool one of a couple of tools that come with accounts. I don't think you could go wrong with either service though! By the way, it looks like ePals has a neat summer reading program. I might try it with my daughter.

Thank you for these ideas! I was thinking the blogmeister is better utilised with the older kids i work with during the school year and imbee is great for primary kids. I will have summer classes with that difficult intermediate group. I'm thinking gaggle or ePALS. What do you think?

Gaggle has free email accounts with advertising for kids and there is a blogging feature that goes along with it. is a social networking site for kids.

I also like the work of Northwestern University's Collaboratory Project, but there isn't really a blogging feature built into it.
