This week, October 18-24, we're celebrating Digital Citizenship Week! It's the perfect time to discuss being safe, responsible, and respectful online (#HaveTheTalk). We all know students are spending more and more time on social networks like Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. To harness this deep-seated interest, we're highlighting the best social networks for classroom use.
- Looking to boost participation and take classroom discussion online? Edmodo* and Twiducate provide a secure system for sharing and commenting.
- Want your students to be good critical thinkers when they're on the Web? Strengthen their digital literacy skills with Storify or Learnist.
- Considering social bookmarking tools for information sharing and collaboration? Diigo and Pinterest are great for online research and Web curation.

Happy Digital Citizenship Week!
