in communicating with other schools in Lexington, with in the
State, US or even Internationally? Forums are a great
communication tool, easy to use and I will be more than happy to
set them up for you. I have several ideas for using them
within your own classroom. Kids of all ages love them and
e-communication is quickly becoming a life skill.
