Storytelling, writing, and drawing are important elements of learning for the children in Vadgam. We would like to see if we can come up with an easy way for children to share their stories, drawings and writing with the world and also allow them to get feedback from others proficient in the English language. We were thinking of creating a blog - in this way children could also practice keyboarding skills, spelling, and get feedback via comments. Can you help create an easy platform for the children to share their pictures, stories and writing with the world?
