AR Digital Sandbox

General Information:

As of March 8th, 2011, ADE announced the Arkansas Digital Sandbox, a new tool offered free to Arkansas schools. It is designed to support the exchange of digital media in a safe and secure social networking environment. In this closed network, educators can create custom classroom groups, invite students to share multimedia files, and post private comments to students about their work. They can even join existing groups and circulate YouTube videos. Students can customize their profiles, upload their own media, form personal learning networks through buddy lists, and rate the work of their peers.
The Arkansas Digital Sandbox will take its place alongside existing digital learning environments such as Arkansas IDEAS and Arkansas on iTunes U as web-based platforms to support teaching and learning.
