New learning environment combines social, instructional and community networking

Schoolwires is launching Nimbus, a safe social learning environment designed to foster student engagement. District administrators can manage users, access and settings; monitor network activity; and apply filters to ensure that all networking is productive and safe. Network usage data and reporting tools also help ensure safety and accountability.

Nimbus combines three kinds of connectivity that exist in a school community: social networking, instructional networking, and community networking.
