Think.com is a website where kids can go to create their own educational webpages and websites. It's an online environment where kids can connect to other kids living around the world. It is a great place to interact with kids from different places, cultures and backgrounds. The more you learn about other cultures, the more tolerant and understanding you can become.
In order to use this site, your school will need to enroll in Think.com. Then a teacher or other adult will give students their passwords. One of the great things about this educational service is that if your school joins the World Community (which is an option) you can read other students' web pages from just about anywhere in the world.
When I joined Think.com, I created my first page about myself. It basically tells a few things about me (favorite color, interests, hobbies etc.). Our class also created pages about our science experiments, math reflections, and interesting facts about a country we studied. You can add pictures, upload files, send messages, and much more. It can be very interesting to create these pages, and it's lots of fun too!
Another great thing about Think.com is that it's totally free. There is no cost to your school, and teachers or principals/head masters can enroll all of the students in your building. It is also a very safe and protected place to work. If your school isn't part of the World Community, then only students who attend your school can see your pages and leave messages for you. If your school is part of the World Community, then anyone who is a member of Think.com can visit your webpages, and you can visit their pages.
Another thing you can do is to participate in projects with kids from around the world. You can either host your own project and have other students join you or you can join someone else's project. There are lots of interesting projects to choose.
If you are ever bored or ever want to meet someone new, you can do it by logging into Think.com! If you are a student and you're interested in this, then you may want to ask your teacher to help your school get started.
