I think I am going to have my 8th graders (and possibly 7th) set up rss aggregators and start reading some blogs of interest to them. I'm wondering if any of you have done this with your students?
Do you have a preferred aggregator for kids? It seems that for most of them the students need to provide an email address. Should I be concerned about this? I was going to let them use technorati to search for blogs. I will, of course, talk about being appropriate and remind them about internet safety. Is that enough? Do you think I need to send a letter home about this?
Thanks for your help with this.
