I started this school year using 2 blogs for my geography and computer science classes. For this endeavor I used the tool “Postach.io“. Although I still very much love the functionality they offer, I decided to switch to WordPress. The two main reasons for this being:
- Students have to maintain their own WordPress blog in class, so me using another platform could prove challenging for them. Switching to WordPress for my class blog, will offer a more trusted environment.
- Postach.io is a very cool product, however the limited themes and formatting possibilities sometimes get in the way of a “good” blogpost. I’d still recommend it to anyone looking for a simple way to share information online by means of Evernote though…
So, if you’d like to take a look at it, here it is:

I’m also using Twitter in my classroom, my hashtag being:
