Students cannot directly communicate on Sumdog. The only setting in which they can communicate is in Writing games, where their messages are carefully checked for spelling, grammar, punctuation and content before being allowed to be sent. We've made sure that students can only write kind words to each other.
Teachers and Parents have full access to read their students' discussions while playing Sumdog's Writing games. Students can only play Sumdog's Writing games if their Teacher or Parent has allowed it.
