Why social software?

Allows for collaboration and connections for students as well as teachers as never before. I know in my district students are required to work on collaborative projects with no collaborative space to collect or put together all of their information without violating our AUP by sharing passwords to get to one another's H drive. The explosion of web 2.0 resources and online sites geared toward working together is beginning to open the door for more interaction among students of all ages.
