Students can only join PenPal Schools if invited by a teacher, so they know their work is monitored! Also, our students have created a culture of responsibility and respect. The vast majority of students are writing positive and thoughtful answers, and any disrespectful content is immediately flagged by students using peer review features. When a message is flagged, both the teacher and the PenPal Schools team are notified. Teachers are then provided with a recommended protocol to help students learn proper digital citizenship skills.
What happens if students write something inappropriate?
