Edmodo


Great site to use for social networking in a protected environment for students. You can assign work, post polls, etc. on this site. As the administrator you have total control over the content that a student publishes. (I had a student make a comment that was inappropriate and it was immediatly forwarded to my inbox, of course I deleted the students account).

StudentTreasures

For the last five years my students have published a book using StudenTreasures. Studentreasures provides the templates for each book. The organization request that at least one of the books be a class book and they also request that you give parents and other adults in the students life an opportunity to purchase an additional book by sending home a flyer about the book before it is published.
