A very small sampling:
- BOOKS! You can read read instantly (ebooks), talk about books (book blogs), and correspond with authors on their own web sites. (Darren Shan and Julie Ann Peters answer their fan emails from teens regularly and personally.)
- You can learn (for FREE!) how to write code in a variety of computer languages.
- While you're at it, you can take classes at Harvard (also FREE!)
- You can use tools to bring news stories and information about a variety of topics to YOU; you don't have to go searching for them.
- You can not only view, but create phenomenal art.
- You can get sound parenting advice and resources from experienced coaches.
- You can practice your math skills and learn new ones.
- You can stay connected with friends and family near and far.
- You can view our nation's historical documents.
- You can laugh at the cleverness and humor of others...or cats. (Since this one is so subjective, you'll have to insert your own favorite link, but I think we can all agree that funny stuff online captures a small portion of our time. We are particularly fond of Colonel Meow.)
- You can be moved and inspired by the creativity of others. (watch all three short films--brilliant!)
- You can keep track of all the great things you find online in one, searchable, tag-able, place that you can share with others.
- You can visit outer space, the depths of the oceans, and all points of our globe in vivid detail.
