I got a call yesterday asking how the default display name in blogs could be set for elementary students to their first name only. I could not make this change for just K-5 students but I thought is was a good idea so I made this change for all new accounts.
Now I am predicting new questions:
- How do I display more than just my first name on my blogs?
- How does an elementary student with an existing account display only their first name?
- Log into the dashboard of one of your blogs
- Click on your name in the upper-right corner
- In Display name publicly as select your choice
- First Last
- Last First
- nickname – this can be set to anything you want in the field directly above
