Images make your blog or wiki more interesting to look at and tell a story by themselves. To add images to a Classblogmeister blog, they must first of all be stored online.

Using Stored Images

  • Children who cannot yet "write" a story can "draw" a story, or the drawings can be used to enhance the text of students who are beginning to write. Children's drawings can be uploaded and then added to your online space.
