6 Great Platforms Where Students Share Book Reviews and Reading Recommendations

One of the best ways to get your students motivated about reading is to provide them with online platforms where they can meet other student readers and share their recommendations, reads, and book reviews. When students know that people other than their fellow mates or teachers can read and interact with what they post, they can show more engagement  and interest .

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has been wading through some of these platforms and handpicked some of the best available online. All the websites mentioned below are student friendly and can be used with your students  in the classroom. Check the list out




1- Library Thing

2- Good Reads

  1. We are proud to be in the list of top six websites where students share reviews and recommendations.

    In addition to the social platform, we offer many features such as digital reading logs and virtual rewards. But most important, what sets us apart from the top three platforms is that we are for, and are focused on the K-8th grade audience and have special built-in safety and privacy measures which make us COPPA compliant.

    Thank you for your article. We look forward to hearing from you.
