How I Use It
I used it with students to learn about different cultures and to help them understand diversity. It also helped with typing and grammar skills.
My Take
Overall, I feel there needs to be more interaction. The students were excited to see their pen pal's responses, yet many pen pals did not. There is a requirement and time limit for students to respond and many students never got a response from their pal.
