Soshiku is So Chic!

Posted by grizzlymedia on January 14, 2009


Everybody loves homework, right? OK, maybe not. But you can make organizing and tracking your assignments a lot easier with a cool Web 2.0 application, Soshiku. Soshiku can keep track of all your assignments and email or text you to remind you of when they are due. You can pair up with a partner on Soshiku and share files, chat, or whatever. For each assignment you can save notes, manage tasks, attach files, and share messages with your partners. After you login to your account, you can easily see all of your upcoming assignments. It’s simple to add new courses and/or assignments from almost any page. A calendar shows you when everything is due; just click a date on the calendar to see the full details. There’s also a view that lets you see your five most recent tasks. It takes literally seconds to add an assignment.  Then you can also follow up by adding your own notes, creating a task list, or uploading attachments, such as a rubric, an assignment outline from your teacher, or your own work. If you’ve been wondering how you can organize your assignments and stay on top of the world, Soshiku is the Web 2.0 tool you’ve been waiting for all your life.

Sure You Know MySpace, But What About TeenSpace?

Posted by grizzlymedia on December 12, 2007


The Internet Public Library has a cool new “branch” called TeenSpace, and it’s made just for you. What does IPL TeenSpace have to offer? For starters, it has great Research and Writing Tips to help you write your research paper. It also has a Poetry Wiki if you’re into writing poetry, or maybe just because you like poetry, so be sure to tell your friends in the Live Poets Society. For all you Blatant Bibliophiles, there’s a Graphic Novels Guide. There are even FAEQs. You’re probably thinking I’m a bad typist and I actually mean FAQs, or frequently asked questions, which most websites have. No way, dude. IPL TeenSpace has FAEQs, frequently asked embarrassing questions, things teens need to know, answered by doctors, psychologists, dropout prevention experts, Planned Parenthood, and yes, even piercing experts! Yes, I said piercing experts from the Association of Professional Piercers. If you’re going to defile your body, at least do it safely, people! And did I mention the Homework Help?  Whatever you do, just don’t go to the Procrastinator link because it has cool, fun stuff that will distract you from doing your school work and your teachers will come in and try to hurt me for telling you about this website. In addition to their major links, the site has directories for clubs and organizations; health and sexuality; money and work; technology; reading and writing; school and homework help; sports, entertainment, and the arts. Sadly, the IPL’s Ask a Question Reference Service will be closed for the holidays from December 17, 2007 through January 7, 2008, but other features of TeenSpace will be available during the break.
