Please pardon any cross-postings as I debated where this would best fall.
We are looking into having some of our teachers explore collaborating/communicating with students in other parts of the U.S. and in other countries. We do not have student email accounts, but I'm looking at either ePals or Gaggle. Has anyone either done a direct comparison of the two services or seen one published somewhere? We'd like to make an informed decision, and I would love to see a one-to-one comparison.
I would greatly appreciate any discussion or feedback on using either of these programs, whether good or bad. Any suggestions (or warnings) will be welcomed!
