  • This report from Common Sense Media

    “reveals that social networking is moving communication from face to face to cyberspace – and that parents have a lot to learn when it comes to their children’s behaviors online.”

    You can download a range of associated material here including the press release, executive summary and the report in total.

    Having checked out the report you might also like to anastasia’s take on the report at ypulse.

  • WordSift is another visualisation tool that was created primarily for teachers. It works just like Wordle but just a bit better.

    All you need do is paste in the text and then sit back. The sifted words then show up in orange or green and the fun really begins. This tool would be lots of fun on an IWB as well as on your own computer.

    Don’t miss checking out the About section for more thoughts on using it.
