Tim Donovan is one of the four founders of Imbee.com, a website providing a free, safe digital social networking environment for students between the ages of 8 and 14. On September 21, 2006, I interviewed Tim over Skype about Imbee and learned more about the free Teacher’s program launched by Imbee. Tim’s observation that organizations and the adults who run them need to provide destinations for students that do more than entertain them really resonated with me. I firmly believe we need to walk the walk as well as talk the talk of safe digital social networking with students. Imbee.com provides an excellent environment for those types of fenced, moderated social networking interactions online.
