My LEGO Network

Publish date:

Built especially for children, My LEGO Network is a safe environment that lets kids create and control their own webpage and interact with one another through buying, collecting, and trading virtual items and sending mail messages. While using "blueprints" and LEGO pieces to construct virtual trading items, students practice following directions, collecting and organizing objects, recognizing patterns, and performing simple math. Social-networking between friends and virtual LEGO characters is facilitated via a simple e-mail program that offers prepopulated subject and message fields, one of the ways the experience on this site is kept safe from cyber bullying and exchange of inappropriate content.
