Twiducate.com is a free resource for educators founded by Brian Aspinall in 2009 and was later taken over by Ray Blakney in 2011. Our goal is to create a medium for teachers and students to
continue their learning outside the classroom. We attempt to fill a need for a more educationally focused, safe venue for teachers, schools, and home learners
in a social networking environment.
We understand that many social networking sites exist, however the control of content is limited for teachers. Also, many of these social networking
sites are continuously being blocked by school firewalls and administrators.
Our service proudly differs in that only teachers and students may view classroom posts, thus creating a private network for you and your students and a safer
online learning environment.
Many students already use social networking sites. Why not give them an opportunity to develop their learning in this type of environment
but with control over visibility and content. Talk about student engagement!
It is a fact that students will need social networking, blogging and basic internet skills to compete in today's business world.
As educators with an interest in web 2.0, we understand how education has and will continue to change. We want to provide an opportunity
for our students to explore web 2.0 but are constantly facing barriers with existing social networking sites.
Not only will twiducate.com give your students the web 2.0 skills they need, but also expand their reading, writing, thoughts and ideas beyond
the classroom setting.
Twiducate.com is an entirely free site. We support it with our other online education projects below. If you like Twiducate, please support us by using our other sites when you need them.
