BoomWriter is one of my all time favorite Web 2.0 sites for education.  This is a fantastic site for Educators grades 3rd-8th (on up) to use w/ their students for Reading and Writing.  With BoomWriter teachers can create student accounts (no student email required - ideal for CIPA/COPPA compliance) and then have their class create a digital story/book.  This is all done through a very easy to use interface and fun competitive process.

The way this works is that students create a story chapter by chapter (they can choose to build a story off a original story starter too) online in BoomWriter's safe environment.  Once a chapter is completed, the students then vote on which chapter should be included in the finished product.  This process goes on and on until the story is completed.  Once a story/book is finished it then gets published online and an actual copy be ordered.  Right now, each new teacher that signs up receives one free class copy!!!

However, BoomWriter also offers a "Technology Heroes Program" which is a great way to incorporate technology into the curriculum.  This program allows every educator and student who participate to receive a free published copy of their story/book (no shipping charges).
