General
How I Use It
I use this site as a place to publish homework assignments, introduce topics for a curated class discussion, and to introduce outside websites in a safe manner. I also encourage the students to use the bookbag feature to lessen their reliance on forgettable USB drives.
My Take
I find it very intuitive for kids who have experience with Facebook and other comparable social networking sites. The opportunities for deeper understanding through discussion and the safety of the closed nature of signing up for groups is very appealing.
