Pros: Well-written articles, including ones written by kids their age, can help students learn about dozens of topics.
Cons: Teachers must provide insight and feedback to personalize the experience; kids can't post comments, which increases safety but limits discussion.
Bottom Line: News content is presented in a digestible format, which, along with educator guidance, can help kids learn about key current events and other topics.
