Great Online Communities for Kids and Teens
From age-appropriate social-networking sites to vibrant communities of writers, edtech increasingly provides terrific ways for teens to learn from their peers online. Introduce your students to some of these sites (in responsible, safe ways) and watch them gain valuable commenting, critiquing, and sharing skills. Not only will students be learning how to collaborate and the value of teamwork, they'll also be building and displaying their own creations that tackle community problems and promote social change.
