I have a question about appropriate content, and I'd really appreciate some opinions. I discovered the Free Rice website in 2008 (here is the website http://freerice.com/#/english-vocabulary/1466 and here is Wikipedia explaining all about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freerice ) I loved it! It was a great idea and perfect for classrooms. Basically, you answer questions and the money your viewing pages makes pays for 10 grains of rice per answer to be donated to a food charity. It has many different subjects, it's highly differentiatable and in fact differentiates itself according to your answers, and you can use it to learn about loads of sites. the children can enjoy logging up answers, they can learn, and they can get the experience of really donating to charity. There is a video where they can see bags of Free Rice being delivered to hungry people around the world. However, the site was revamped (Free Rice 2.0) and I stopped using it because I was a bit worried about it - it now has links to Facebook and Twitter, people can create their own accounts, and I'm not sure about the ads that are being placed on the website - if they are entirely appropriate for me to use in a class. I did a bit of research and I did find some examples of schools using Free Rice to teach with: http://www.schools.com/news/join-schools-in-taking-a-stand-against-world-hunger http://teaching.monster.com/benefits/articles/6221-new-and-improved-free-rice http://www.brighthubeducation.com/teaching-methods-tips/19464-freerice-com-for-teachers/ http://link.sd54.org/snottoli/2012/01/06/free-rice-website/ What do you think? do you think it's appropriate to use in class? Because if other schools are, and it is appropriate, I would love to! Thanks in advance for replies!
