Social learning network in the classroom

I received an update today regarding Learning Space, which is a social networking site for classrooms. They currently boast over 700 000 classrooms in 200 countries in their global community which are all connected for collaborative projects and shared resources. There appear to be a number of benefits in Learning Space, such as a teacher/school’s ability to set privacy and safety settings to manage student interaction, organize grouping functions for classes or projects, and access to blogs, wikis, forums, etc.  The Global Community may be a good resource to follow and/or investigate further, especially for collaborative project-based learning that take on a more global focus.
