aims to be the blogging platform of choice in the K-8 classroom

by Geoff Dutton


When elementary teacher Matt Hardy had trouble finding a blogging solution to meet the needs of his 3rd grade Eden Prairie class, he decided to create it himself. Two years in the making, this U of M Computer Science graduate has taken from WordPress install to a highly customized kid friendly publishing system specifically for K-8 educators and their students.

“Based on my six years of experience in the learning environment, I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t” says Mr. Hardy describing the development process and simple user interface that allows students and teachers to focus in on content creation.
