    Any experince of Makewav.es, Skoodle or similar?

    There are are few 'safe social networking' alternatives around and I was wondering if anyone had experience of them, especially in the primary sector.

    https://www.makewav.es/ is free for the basic offering, but with 100MB of storage, I doubt this is enough which means you'd have to pay to use it fully.

    Skoodle is pay per pupil and seems a more limited offering.

    Has anyone had any experience that they'd be willing to share of these or any alternatives please?

    I have knowledge of both so feel free to email/PM and I'll let you know the feedback I've had from schools. Both have advantages and a few drawbacks depending on what you want to use it for.

    Another site which might be worth looking at is Edmodo as that is a free service and has had great feedback from schools.

    We've been using makewav.es at our High School for a little bit. Our student reporters use it to blog about special school events. We're probably not using it fully to be honest.

    Edmodo is a nice looking platform which seems to be exciting teachers. I've set up a profile myself, and it does seem to have some nice features.

    I'm sure these types of services will end up replacing VLEs in many schools before long.

    Which version of MakingWav.es does your school subscribe to @IrritableTech ?

    Not sure @elsiegee40 I'll ask the man who pays the bill and let you know. Sorry for late reply.
