Brikut Is An Interesting New Site


The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience” list is filled with links to sites where students can write on the web and others can read their creations. Some of these links include news sites or others where they can leave comments on news content. Brikut is somewhat similar — users can leave comments on news stories from around the web. It differs, though, in one key way that makes it potentially especially engaging to students — users can add a link to the site to any other article about a topic that they are interested in. Then, they can leave a comment about that news item. Or, a teacher can choose a particular article that he/she wants students to comment on and, in addition to students comments, they can check to see what other people have said, too.

It’s similar to another site called Spotery.

Both are now on the previously mentioned “authentic audience” “The Best…” list.

  2. Thanks for being such a great resource. I always look forward to reading your posts. I liked this one and especially loved “The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience”. I plan to link this on my blog tomorrow. This evening I wrote about the website It may fit into your list. This is a fantastic site to create “pageflip” books and magazines without any advertisements and you can embed them on any site. I’m really excited about this one. If you haven’t seen it check it out if you get a chance. Thanks again for all you do!
