Shawna Verbeke (see link to SLVERBEK's Weblog on the right - http://slverbek.wordpress.com/) called attention to a new resource available for students - a tweaked version of FaceBook called Share Homework. From Shawna's description it has some interesting potential to support learners.
Doing homework isn't as sexy as some other social-networking activities. But high-school and college kids share and collaborate all the time. Technology just adds support for the work we do - including schoolwork.
