  1. This looks great!

    But for lower school teachers, I’d like to add that WordPress does not work if you want lower school students to blog WITH you, since it requires e-mail addresses for contributors. I’ve been using EduBlogs for that reason (even though I’d rather be using WordPress). I believe Stephanie DP has also been using it. However, I’m not sure I would recommend it. It’s not that easy for younger students.

    Does anyone have a no-email-required blogging platform to recommend?
