Dweeber is a social networking website for students to connect with friends and do homework. I can hear the parents reading this saying to themselves that their teen would never get any work done while online with friends. However, studies of the millennial generation all show that they prefer working in groups than alone. So, Dweeber might really be onto something.

To work with your friends on Dweeber, you enter study sessions with them and work through problems together on the whiteboards provided. For further incentive, Dweeber allows students to earn Guru points. These can be earned by helping friends with homework, pointing out your friends successes and sharing and voting on websites. The points will eventually earn students gifts and prizes.

Dweeber was created by SmartWired, “an organization dedicated to helping kids and young adults maximize their capabilities and bring out their best in all areas of life.” Working together in groups helps prepare teens for the future. Many jobs require groups to work together for projects to get done. I think it sounds like a good idea. What about you?
