Book Club It is a new web tool that lets you easily create and participate in online book discussion groups. After registering, you can quickly find a thumbnail image of pretty much any book out there and set privacy options (you can make it public, or can set it so you can only access it if you have the precise url address and participants have been approved). Online polls related to the book can be set-up in seconds.

This is a good idea, Mike (and Larry)! The issue I come across when working with teachers who would like to create a book club with students, is that most students I work with do not have email accounts. Some schools are looking at Gaggle while others are allowing students Google gmail accounts for the Google Docs features and turning off the email feature.

 

Email can be such a positive! In the case of Google, student email can be set up to receive only, or send, or send and receive. The accounts can be set up so that they live inside a "walled garden", email only received and sent by members of the same domain.

I'll definitely share this resource with my groups. If it will encourage dialogue, I'm in! Thanks!
