Best of 2013 So Far… A Guide to Mobile Blogging Apps for Students & Teachers

We’re half-way through 2013. Like I’ve done in years past, this week I’ll be featuring some of the best new tech tools of 2013 as well as some of the most popular posts of the year.

One of the blogging activities that I often suggest in my workshops
is having students record and share on-the-spot observations during
field trips. To do this your students should have a mobile blogging
application on their iOS and Android devices. If your students don’t
have iOS or Android devices if they have a mobile device that has a web
browser or email client they can post via email to Blogger. Here’s a
short run-down of mobile blogging options on the blog platforms that I
usually recommend to teachers.

Blogger: Google offers mobile apps for Android and for iOS. The apps can be found here
You can also post to Blogger via email if you have enabled that feature
in your Blogger settings. You can find directions for activating post
via email here
With post via email activated you and your students can blog through
any email app that you have installed on your phone or tablet.

WordPress: If you are using either or a self-hosted WordPress blog you can post to it through the free iOS app
or through the free Android app learn more about the Android app in the video below.

EduBlogs: Edublogs currently offers iPhone and iPad apps, but does not offer an Android app. You can find the iOS app here

Kidblog: Kidblog doesn’t currently offer their own Android or iOS
apps, but you can enable mobile publishing and use the WordPress iOS
and Android apps to publish to your Kidblog. You can find directions for
enabling mobile publishing on Kidblog here
