One Stop Teen Site?

Filed under: websites, writing — Tags: , , — SCPL Teens @ 5:59 pm

Student.com is a huge site dedicated to teens and what they have to say. You can make your own profile page, play games, write poetry, make journal pages, chat, give and receive feedback on teen writings, look for jobs… (you know at some point.)
Need some trash talking ideas? See here. Find advice columns for everything from fashion and gaming, to bigger topics like sexuality and health. One of my favorite things in the site is Busta-A-Rhyme where you add a line to a collaborative poem made by many teens.

Student.com is made for 13 year olds up through college, so don’t be surprised to find some folks in their 20s there.

Check it out and tell us what you think. Is it easy or confusing to use? Is it really a cool place for teens? Or is it too many things rolled into one?

Make a Meez

Meez 3D avatar avatars games

Like Ms. Amy’s Meez? Meez is a site that lets you build an avatar with literally hundreds of choices for appearance, animations and backdrops. You can create a profile page and get messages kind of like on MySpace. You can also play games and chat.
Everything is based on the avatar you create. It can be as real or imaginary as you like.

The word avatar has a couple of definitions. Which one defines your avatar? 🙂

Avatar[av·uh·tahr] -noun
1. Hindu Mythology the incarnation of a higher being
2. Computers a graphic image that represents a person, as on the internet

Make a Meez and send it to us. We’ll show it here in the blog!
